It’s the unofficial start of Spring Training! Time to drown yourselves in baseball, photos of new guys in your favorite team(s) uniforms, and what have you.

  • With John Farrell back in the fold, the former Boston pitching coach might just improve the pitching staff. After all, it was his specialty, just like ridiculousness was Bobby V’s. (Reunion may reap rewards)
  • Your dreams of the Red Sox landing an ace will probably stay dreams. More and more teams are locking them up long-term, and with the way Boston operates now, aces are just another money trap. (Red Sox can’t wait for aces in free agency)
  • “As long as he stays healthy.” The eternal disclaimer on anything someone says about Andrew Bailey. He’s lost his closer job, but Bailey knows he first needs to do well as a setup man to get it back. (Bailey looks for a bounce back)

To the people who are snowed in…celebrate warmly.
