BBTN Minute: Kurkjian on Sox questions
In today's "Baseball Tonight Minute," Tim Kurkjian says the Red Sox are the contending team with the most question marks, citing starting pitching, catcher, shortstop, right field and Carl Crawford's recovery from wrist surgery.
That being said, Kurkjian adds that he is "100 percent certain" that Bobby Valentine will figure out most of the issues, and he predicts the Sox will be a playoff team.
