Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman has handed out his off-season report cards and the Red Sox were the only team in the American League to receive an 'A' grade for the work they've done thus far. I'm obviously as biased as they come but I'd have to agree with the grading.
The Sox have made their pitching staff the deepest (and youngest) in all of baseball and have filled all holes needed on the team (except for closer). The Daisuke Matsuzaka signing was the best of the off-season especially compared to how much the Giants overpaid for the services of Barry Zito.
Like always, the team will have to gel and prove themselves on the field, but on paper we're looking really deep and talented on both sides of the diamond.
