The big news from Fort Myers on Tuesday? Dustin Pedroia shaved his beard. They’re keeping busy down there in Florida, for sure.
- Spring training: The only time that Clay Buchholz can pitch a one inning, ineffective start and use “jitters” as a legitimate excuse. (Buchholz feels good after rough outing)
- Christian Vazquez has been receiving a lot of praise this spring. The 23 year olds latest endorsement came from one of the best defensive catchers in the game. (A solid vote for Vazquez)
- The Red Sox organizational depth has set them up to be a force for years to come. But before a dynasty is reached, two important pieces need to be locked up. (Signing Jon Lester, David Ortiz part of building dynasty)
- Dustin Pedroia would be the shortest captain since Napoleon Bonaparte, so maybe that’s why he’s not a fan of a titled leader. (Why the Red Sox aren’t (and shouldn’t be) in any rush to name another captain)
- You know Shane Victorino is doing a great job in Fenway’s right field when an all time great is praising him. No, not Troy O’Leary. Dwight Evans! (Dwight Evans lauds Shane Victorino for his work in right field)
- While he isn’t gaining the same media attention that Russell Wilson is, Browns linebacker and former Red Sox draft pick, Brandon Magee, is working out with the Sox in Fort Myers. (Russell Wilson isn’t alone: Why Brandon Magee is in Red Sox Camp)
- How do you tell when Grady Sizemore is fully healthy? When he’s running like a tailback, of course! (The tailback lean: The ascent and progress of Grady Sizemore)
