Sure feels good to have impact prospects in the Boston’s system again. I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited for the next generation of Sox.
- A strong spring, combined with shallow outfield depth, may just give Jackie Bradley Jr. his first cup of coffee earlier than anyone expected. (Can Jackie Bradley Earn A Promotion This Spring?)
- The Yankees as a source of happiness? Oh, this has GOT to be good. I cannot be any less ironic right now. (Want to feel better about the Red Sox? Then take a good look at the Yankees)
- Speaking of the Yanks, Kevin Youkilis is finding peace in the pinstripes. Strange, because a few years ago, I would’ve thought he’d be the Sox player with the most hate for them. (Kevin Youkilis at peace as Yankee)
- More salary dump happiness: Allen Webster is turning heads. That tends to happen when you strike out the 3-4-5 hitters of Toronto’s lineup in order. (Allen Webster Steals The Show In Red Sox Win Over Blue Jays)
- One of the lessons Ben Cherington learned from last year is that you can never have too much pitching. Boy, did he learn well. (Sox have plenty of arms…just in case)
- A look back on one of the more…interesting trades of recent years. Darn you, reconstructive thumb surgery! (Transaction Retrospection: The Bailey-Reddick Trade)
- HAHAHA. Oh, wait. He’s actually serious. My sides are killing me, I’m laughing so hard… (Valentine: I thought I did a good job with Sox)
- I think it’s about time to retire the Dice-K moniker. Let’s face it, it’s not like he ever lived up to it. (Daisuke Matsuzaka ain’t throwing gas)
Lots of good things coming out of Ft. Myers. This could end up being a very relaxing spring.
