“Without a Curse” Episode 553: “Scott Lauber Of The Boston Herald Previews The AL East” (2/18/13)
Hosted by: Alex Reimer
In this episode of “Without a Curse,” Alex begins to preview the 2013 MLB season! This week, Alex and Scott Lauber of The Boston Herald take a look at the AL East.
Scott tells Alex what the vibe is around the Red Sox, and if it is significantly different from the vibe at last year’s Spring Training. They also talk about the biggest keys for the Red Sox to turn around their fortunes.
Alex and Scott discuss the other four teams in the division, and the issues that face them:
*Will the Orioles slide back to the pack after an offseason of relative inactivity?
*Is the Rays’ pitching staff still good enough to carry their club?
*Should we be careful about how optimistic we are on the Blue Jays
*Is this the year the Yankees finally play like their old?
Alex gives his own take on the latest news around Red Sox Spring Training, and why he thinks things aren’t different enough in Ft. Myers.
In the “Around the League” segment, the meaning behind the Indians signing Michael Bourn, and the appropriateness of Kevin Youkilis saying he will “always be a Red Sock” are talked about.
