The Red Sox find themselves in a situation they haven't had to deal with since the new ownership group entered the picture at the beginning of the century. Several seasons of success and lavish spending gave way to a last-place finish in the AL East in 2012. This came after a spectacular implosion at the end of 2011. The recent chain of events has re-focused the organization. They no longer are shopping for elite free agents or paying big-money contracts, preferring to bide time until upper-level prospects are ready in 2014 and 2015. New manager John Farrell is a familiar face at Fenway Park from his days as a pitching coach, and there's hope that he can influence pitchers that had down years in 2012. Expectations are set low for 2013, and there are holes on the roster. The Red Sox need bounce-back seasons from a few key players and minimal health problems to remain competitive in their division.
