Expectations For The Red Sox in 2011

Well, The Red Sox added Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez as well as some quality bullpen help this off season.  The Red Sox signed Hideki Okajima (hopefully he can return to form).  No idea what to expect from Josh Beckett or John Lackey so those are huge question marks for this team.  Offense once again will not be an issue and neither will defense.  However, starting pitching is a question mark.  Fortunetly injuries look to be over for the Red Sox and Dustin Pedroia should be back to his normal self.  I have a little concern as to who spells Kevin Youkilis if he needs a day off at third?  Would they use Jed LowrieBill Hall is no longer with the team so there goes that option.

So, what are people's expectations for this team in 2011?  Play-offs?, Deep into Play-offs? World Series?
