When the Red Sox and the Cardinals get together, you know you’re in for a good game. Unless of course, the Red Sox are starting Chris Capuano.
- While he was part of a World Series winning squad, Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s tenure in Boston ended on a pretty sour note. (Disappointment over departure from Boston lingers for Jarrod Saltalamacchia)
- There is a lot of hype surrounding Xander Bogaerts heading into the 2014 season. But what can we realistically demand from the 21 year old rookie? (What can we expect from Xander Bogaerts?)
- Speaking of Xander Bogaerts, he hit his first home run of the spring. It’s probably orbiting Pluto right about now. (Bogaerts’ two-run blast)
- Are the Red Sox better, worse, or the same? Breaking it down position by position is a good place to find out. (A position by position breakdown of the 2014 Red Sox compared to last year)
- Jake Peavy’s fishing knife injury has become a daily topic of discussion down in Fort Myers. The veteran righty finally returned to the mound on Wednesday…sort of. (For Peavy, an unorthodox bullpen session)
- The Red Sox farm system is flush with talent all over the diamond. But perhaps their deepest position is starting pitching. (Rich in pitching depth)
- Tweet of the day: Brian MacPherson using a Tommy Layne pun while he still can.
Tommy Layne is in my ears and in my eyes.
