We are in full preseason prediction overload time here with Opening Day just days away. As such, it means it is time for our annual superlatives prediction series, in which all of us on staff here at OTM along with the community will be picking who we think will finish the season on top in a number of categories. We’ll be voting on team MVP, best pitcher, defensive wizard, biggest surprise (in a positive sense), biggest disappointment, and unsung hero. Click the available links to vote in previous polls already put out. We’ll run two of these polls every day, and reveal the winners on Wednesday.

For this poll, we’ll be looking for the best pitcher on the Red Sox in the coming year. This is, of course, pretty self-explanatory, and again can be voted upon using whatever criteria you think fits best. Maybe you think a reliever can be eligible, perhaps you don’t. Different people may view innings more or less importantly than others. It’s your call, as always.

The poll is below in alphabetical order, and if you believe I have omitted someone who deserves consideration please drop their name in the comments and I will add them to the poll. (Note that the player will be added to the end and not in alphabetical order.) And finally, remember this is supposed to be fun. Don’t ruin this for others with any shenanigans.
