Another uneventful day on at Fort Myers has come and gone…

  • Red Sox manager John Farrell has spent two very different seasons at the helm in Boston. From worst-to-first and back to worst again, the 2015 season will mark the final year on the 52-year old current contract. But despite a last place finish in the AL East in 2014, the Red Sox front office wants to keep Farrell in the drivers seat in Boston. (Red Sox, John Farrell talking contract extension)
  • A this time last season, Craig Breslow was still recovering from the workload of the Red Sox 2013 World Series run. Instead of tossing bullpens or live batting practice like the other pitchers, the left-hander was limited to only playing catch. Subsequently, Breslow spent the 2014 season playing catch-up, and was hammered on the mound because of it. Now with a full offseason of rest and a new 1-year deal with the Red Sox, Breslow can ease his way back into his regular routine. (Craig Breslow happy to be a regular guy this spring)
