Baseball Tonight's Karl Ravech and Tim Kurkjian debate the biggest issue for the Red Sox heading into spring training.

Kurkjian says starting pitching is the No. 1 key. How will much-maligned starters Josh Beckett and Jon Lester respond to their September swoon?

However, Kurkjian says the player under the most pressure is left fielder Carl Crawford. He thinks new Sox manager (and former ESPN colleague) Bobby Valentine will help Crawford unlock his full potential.

In another segment, Kurkjian says how the Sox react to new manager Bobby Valentine is MLB's second-biggest storyline of the spring, behind the Marlins' Miami makeover.
