The Red Sox finished 23rd in baseball in team ERA in 2014, largely due to an inconsistent starting rotation. The problems started early for Clay Buchholz, Jake Peavy and Felix Doubront and compounded with the trades of Jon Lester and John Lackey.
A number of prospects took the hill for the Sox in the second half, as well as Joe Kelly, acquired in the Lackey trade. None really separated themselves from the pack and, with the team looking to climb back into contention in 2015, it seems free agent signings or trades for pitchers are imminent.
We asked the BSI staff: who do you have in the Boston Red Sox starting rotation for 2015?
