1. The Red Sox will have a 20 game winner
As previously stated, the Red Sox have a pretty mediocre rotation. That’s not to say that are bad pitchers or won’t win games, but they don’t have that legitimate ace that they have had in previous seasons. The bold prediction here is that the Red Sox have a 20 game winner in the rotation and that pitcher will be Rick Porcello.
Porcello had a breakout season last year, and with a contract year coming up, he could be the Red Sox 20 game winner. Slated as the number two starter to begin the season, Porcello has a good defense behind him, and an even better offense to give him run support. These tools will be everything he needs to win ballgames this season.
