Who likes watching fun teams? I like watching fun teams. And from what I saw, the 2013 Red Sox will be fun. So strap yourselves in and enjoy the ride.
- Sure, it’s a bit early to do this, but why not give credit where credit is due? The new Red Sox skipper did a good job on Opening Day. (In praise of John Farrell)
- Striking out Kevin Youkilis is no easy feat. But it happened in just five pitches. That’s all Andrew Bailey needed in his first April game with the Sox. (First outing gives Bailey boost)
- And who could forget Boston’s very own wunderkind: Jackie Bradley? The rookie looked seasoned going up against a tough lefty in CC Sabathia, and you couldn’t ask for more from the kid. (Jackie Bradley’s Red Sox Debut)
- Less is more? Up until Jarrod Saltalamacchia‘s double in the 5th, the Sox had only hit singles, but still had the lead. Offense isn’t just about hitting home runs anymore. (This Red Sox Offense Just Might Be Good Enough After All)
- Starting Pitching Rebound Project, Part 2: Clay Buchholz in the Bronx. Let’s see how he handles the Yankees’ lineup of Robinson Cano & The Facepalms tonight. (Buchholz takes a healthy outlook into his first start)
- What’s the opposite of having no pitching depth? Because the Red Sox have it. I mean, this rotation is better than a few major league teams’ five guys. (Pawtucket’s starting rotation is something to behold)
- Great to see Stephen Drew finally being able to play again. Can’t wait to see this team at full strength. (Stephen Drew cleared to play in games after concussion)
- Not much of a read, but the Sox are starting to stockpile first basemen like they’ll be the premium currency after some odd baseball apocalypse or something. (Twitter)
Anyone else call rookies “kid” regardless of age? Daniel Nava is nine years my elder and I still call him kid from time to time.
