As pleasant as spring training can be, we're counting the days until the real games begin for the Red Sox on April 1 in the Bronx against Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson ... well, some guys in Yankees uniforms. But until the games—and stats—begin to count, it's fun to consider the possibilities of what could happen.
That considered, here are a few projections from various outlets—Baseball Prospectus's PECOTA system, The Bill James Handbook, and Dan Szymborski's ZiPS projections that can be found at Fangraphs and Baseball Think Factory—that jumped out regarding the 2013 Red Sox.
I'll share the projection, then offer my take on whether it will be out of reach or surpassed. You get to weigh in as well – a survey will be on each slide.
