The Red Sox are hoping Farrell can solve many of the team’s attitude problems, but several players are worth keeping any eye on:
-- Alfredo Aceves: After already earning a time out with Farrell about his performance during last Sunday’s practice, it’ll be interesting to see if any more drama pops up around this pitcher.
-- John Lackey. Despite a less-than-stellar performance at the end of last season, Lackey looks to be in good shape at Spring Training, keeping his fastball down. He’s lost a ton of weight, which quiet his chicken-and-beer detractors.
-- Dustin Pedroia—On a lighter note, the question surrounding Pedroia may be: To tweet or not to tweet? Pedroia has both confirmed and denied that he is now on Twitter.
