Hello codiz

"with a star studded lineup,example:manny ramirez. david ortiz"

Well, you have to bat 9 players in a game. Ellsberry and Youkoulis Are the only good hitters that have the health to last all year. Since the start of the debate, ortiz and MAnny have gone down with injuries, and since they are older you don't know how long they'll be out. I heard David Ortiz could have season ending surgery.

"they also have the best bullpen in the american league"

Including the whole pitching staff, the Red sox are
5th in ERA
4th in Saves
5th in hits
7th in runs
1st in wins
4th in BAA http://sports.espn.go.com...

If they had the best bullpen, they would have been iin first in many more categories. PLease show facts to support this opinion.

I will provide a further argument next round.

Hello

My opponet has seemed to forfeited this round, so I'll give a little bit of information.

1)David Ortiz could be out for the rest of the year, so you can't say your lineup is," studded lineup,example:manny ramirez. david ortiz,why wouldny they?" And at Manny's age, he coulld get hurt any game.

2)There are teams with young players that are looking to strike in the playoffs. I think they can. They are the teams like the Rays, Diamondbacks, Brewers, and Padres. Those teams could hold up, injury wise, longer than the Red Sox throughout the year.

3)There is a monster in thier division waiting to strike in the name of the Yankees. Don't you think the tisdes have turned after the day the Red Sox fight in the dugout and then the Yankees hit a walk off? There's some good talent on that team. We have seen them make a run in the 2nd half plenty of times before, so do't count them out.
