Spring Training is only a couple weeks away. Sure, it’s a couple exhibitions against college kids, but baseball’s baseball. Hell, have them play Little Leagues if need be!
- It’s been a long winter. The glory of the World Series hasn’t completely faded away, but we all long for the Red Sox to start their title defense. (Red Sox give frozen Nation hope of better days)
- It’s no secret that the Red Sox have a plethora of starting pitching. Lots of trade chips there, but it might be smarter to wait and see first. (Red Sox would be wise to hang onto starting pitching depth)
- It wouldn’t be a rivalry without a face for the foe, and Derek Jeter was that face. With respect, the Red Sox reacted to his retirement news. (Red Sox react to news Jeter will retire after 2014)
- Oh, you have a franchise shortstop, Yankees? That’s quite nice. The Sox have a prodigy of their own. But he’s a bit younger with a cooler name. (Derek Jeter and Xander Bogaerts: A Tale of Two Shortstops)
- Jeter’s last regular season game will be – amazingly – at Fenway Park on September 28th. It’s not often a ticket for a regular season game is over $1,000. (Ticket prices soar for Jeter’s farewell game, at Fenway)
- He hasn’t exactly shown up to camp in the last few years in the Best Shape Of His Life, but Felix Doubront knows 2014 is a pivotal year for him. (Felix Doubront Hopes Offseason Serves As Springboard To 2014 Breakthrough)
- The Red Sox were so good in 2013, they even made life easier for the squads facing the teams Boston just beat. (The best team in baseball: the team after the Red Sox)
Well, can’t blame a guy for trying.
