To say that the Red Sox are overrated right now in our eyes is a bit of an understatement. We don’t think that Al Aceves has the ability to close games, and we don’t think that the offense without Carl Crawford is really all that fantastic. We would really much rather have the combination of Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder in the middle of the lineup. Justin Verlander is in no way, shape, or form likely to have the year that he had in 2011, but he is still a dominating pitcher, especially here at home. Sure, Jon Lester could give some problems to the Detroit lineup, but in the end, we just don’t think that the Sox are winning this game anywhere near half the time that it is played.
