    The good-Addition by subtraction- No Bobby Valentine; John Farrell, solid professional replacement. The circus left town. And no Josh Beckett.

    Pleasant surprise that 3 starting pitchers the Sox are counting on this spring look solid:

    LHP Jon Lester
    RHP Clay Buchholz
    RHP Ryan Dempster
     

    Bullpen= one of the best in MLB

    RHP Joel Hanrahan
    RHP Andrew Bailey
    RHP Junichi Tazawa
    RHP Koji Uehara
    LHP Andrew Miller
    RHP Clayton Mortensen
    RHP Alfredo Aceces 

    LINEUP  5 solid bats
    CF Jacoby Ellsbury
    2B Dustin Pedroia
    DH Mike Napoli
    LF Jonny Gomes
    3B Will Middlebrooks

    The bad=

    Injuries to David Ortiz and Stephen Drew

    The Ugly

    When will David Ortiz and Stephen Drew return?

    Biggest question with Ortiz is not so much when he will return but how long will it last.  Drew's "mild" concussion appears to be more than mild - just hope he doesn't suffer any residual problems going forward.  That was a really unfortunate injury for him.

    In response to BurittoT's comment:

    Excellent=Jackie Bradley-spring average = .517. At this point in camp, Bradley has more hits than any other Red Sox have total bases, even as most of the starting nine have a similar number of at-bats. His OPS exceeds 1.300.



    The only way that Bradley make the roster is if Ortiz can't go and Gomes is slotted in as DH. He will then platoon with Nava in LF.

    Do you give more weight to the .271/.373/.437/.809 line Jackie Bradley posted in 271 plate appearances as an age-appropriate 22-year-old at Double A last year or the .517/.611/.690/1.301 line Bradley has posted in 36 plate appearances in Spring Training this year?

    You might as well had put another hyphen after Triumph- and returned as Triumph-- instead of using Conan.




    Really? Did Triumph get banned? No surprise there, but I cannot see his posts so I haven't noticed he is not here. Good for the mods!

    Why not just start the guys with the highest ST BAs?  About 7 are batting .500 or more.
