The "Dangerous" Red Sox

The Sporting News picks the Red Sox as the most dangerous wild card team in the playoffs:

To win in October, a team needs power pitching, at least one big-time slugger, a dominant closer and a chip on its shoulder (the "we don't get any respect" angle is always popular).
No team features a better mix of these ingredients than the Red Sox.

I have to agree with them on this one.  If the Sox get good efforts out of Lester, Beckett, Buchholz and Dice-K they will be very tough to beat.  The addition of V-Mart has made the offense very powerful and there are enough good arms in the pen.  I say bring on the Angels and let's send 'em home again.

And of course the chip will be "Goddammit we dropped those six in a row at the end of the season".

Besides the fact that slugger-wise, Bay is second only to Tex & Pena, while Papi has quietly hit the most HRs of anyone in the AL since July 1st.
