It’s been a pretty quiet couple weeks for the Red Sox. This is what the offseason will do to you. Although, it could just be championship hangover. Who knows.
- It’s been a long while since we’ve heard good things about the Red Sox going into an offseason. Optimism really does a team well after a year like 2013. (Offseason Sox talk finally full of optimism)
- You know who’s pretty dang valuable? Daniel Nava. His prowess at getting on base and his versatility allow the Sox to do so much more in free agency. (Why Daniel Nava Has Become Red Sox’ Offseason MVP)
- He’s had his highs and lows, but 2014 will be one that will define Felix Doubront. The young southpaw will have to prove he belongs in the rotation. (2014 will be Felix Doubront’s proving ground)
- We need to lay off the Mark Trumbo trade talks. As prodigious as his power is, the man is just frustration in a first baseman package. (The curious and uninformed coveting of Mark Trumbo needs to stop)
- The market for Jacoby Ellsbury has been rather subdued lately, but now teams are dropping out and the need for his services is growing. (Jacoby Ellsbury market gaining steam)
- He’s just a shell of his former self now. Daniel Bard‘s downward spiral looks to be finally ending by hitting rock bottom. (Daniel Bard struggling in Puerto Rican Winter League)
- Dynamic ticket pricing? Interesting. But I’m sure the Red Sox will have no problem selling most – if not all – of the tickets. (Red Sox ticket prices to vary depending on demand in 2014)
I wouldn’t doubt it.
Pedroia believes in Sasquatch? Hell, he might have played with him this year.
