I hope all of you are knee-deep in fantasy baseball drafts at this point, and I bid you all good luck. Quick tip: I wouldn’t draft Roy Halladay at any point before the 10th round.
- Clay Buchholz is having a solid March down in Ft. Myers. The groundballer is burning worms left and right as Spring Training goes on. (Buchholz’s strong spring continues vs. Blue Jays)
- Salary dumps are a wonderful thing. They bring you financial flexibility, a chance to quickly rebuild, and guys like Allen Webster. (Sox pitching prospect Webster opening some eyes in camp)
- Sure, Ryan Lavarnway might not be the answer behind the dish. But when you’ve got a fantastic fallback in Christian Vazquez, you can afford a few missteps. (Christian Vazquez, Future Red Sox’ Catcher?)
- As the successor to Tim Wakefield, Steven Wright will take a while to really be a major-league-ready knuckleball hurler. The Red Sox are more than okay with that. (Steven Wright demoted, but Red Sox believe in him)
- The temporary loss of David Ortiz will be felt. But that means it’s time for another game of Revolving Door, this time with the DH! …Ugh. (John Farrell Envisions DH Rotation While David Ortiz Is Out)
- Get well soon, Stephen Drew. We need you to become the comeback player you were signed to be. (Red Sox SS still feeling concussion symptoms)
- In his free time, when he isn’t struggling to figure out Twitter, Dustin Pedroia is out hunting his spiritual opposite: Bigfoot. (Dustin Pedroia continues his search)
Just in general, you can wait on pitchers in fantasy baseball. There’s tons of serviceable starters available.
