Enough with last year already. It happened, stop bringing it up and move on with the new season.
This year's Boston Red Sox team will be eagerly awaiting the beginning of the 2012 season in hopes of proving their doubters wrong and taking back the AL East from the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays.
While there are some new faces on the team this year, many of the old favorites are still there.
The Red Sox lost the likes of Tim Wakefield and (probably) Jason Varitek to retirement, and Jonathan Papelbon signed as a free agent with the Philadelphia Phillies. Josh Reddick was traded to the Oakland A's and Kyle Weiland to the Houston Astros.
However, the Red Sox have brought in Andrew Bailey, Mark Melancon, Ryan Sweeney, Cody Ross and Kelly Shoppach to fill the voids.
The Red Sox have the ability to make a deep run in the playoffs barring any unforeseen injuries and a fourth and fifth pitcher can be found.
This year's group of Red Sox will see these stars shine bright under the lights of Fenway.
