2013 Boston Red Sox: Breaking Down Team's Blueprint for Winning the Division
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
The Red Sox are hoping to reserve their fortunes from 2012.

The Boston Red Sox finished in last place in the American League East last season with a 69-93 record, their worst mark as a team since 1967. Having made a number of moves this past offseason, the team hopes they enter 2013 with the right blueprint to win their division.

The core of the team—including Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Jon Lester and Jacoby Ellsbury—is returning and seeking redemption from the misery of 2012.

The American League East is traditionally known for its competitiveness, and this season will be no different.

Many thought that the Toronto Blue Jays had one of the best offseasons of any team in baseball this winter.

The Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays all won at least 90 games last season and will be no pushovers this year.

Clearly, the Red Sox have their work cut out for them. Fortunately, they have a roster loaded with highly-paid talent and a minor league system boasting a bumper crop of prospects. By using such resources and having a few things go their way, getting back to contention is a strong possibility.

Click though for a breakdown of what Boston’s blueprint should be if they want to make a run at winning their division this season.
