The Red Sox celebrate a walk-off win over the Yankees in September. A key player for 2013 drove in the winning run.

The Boston Red Sox are much closer to reclaiming the MLB throne than you think.

Yes, the same team that lost 93 games in 2012 could be dominant again in 2013. And yes, the same team that blew a historically huge division lead in 2011, while allegedly enjoying fried chicken and beer in the clubhouse, could be one of the league’s best teams again next season.

The Red Sox signed seven free agents this offseason and will pay them $61.1 million in 2013.
