Red Sox vs. Twins lineups: Here’s (basically) the Opening Day lineup

We have a glimpse of what the lineup card could look like when the Red Sox open their season. We’re in the home stretch of spring training, and with the roster getting trimmed down we’re getting closer and closer to seeing lineups full of regulars on the field. On Sunday, the Red Sox will pretty much have that. This lineup is likely extremely close to the one we’ll see on April 3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B Andrew Benintendi, LF Mookie Betts, RF Hanley Ramirez, DH Mitch Moreland, 1B Xander Bogaerts, SS Jackie Bradley, CF Pablo Sandoval, 3B Christian Vazquez, C Starting Pitcher:...

Silverman: Lingering questions remain for Red Sox

Silverman: Lingering questions remain for Red Sox

FORT MYERS — It’s not been enough, but we learned a great deal about the 2017 Red Sox this spring.Chris Sale looks as if he’s remarkably well-equipped in both stuff and poise to thrive with the Red Sox. Christian Vazquez, another year removed from his Tommy John surgery, has regained his cannon of a throwing arm.But even when you throw in tidbits such as the four best ping-pong players on the team are probably Sale, Chris Young, Mookie Betts and Joe Kelly, and that the clubhouse is much quieter without David Ortiz, the Red Sox puzzle adds up to what, exactly?An incomplete picture.Spring...

Red Sox vs. Pirates lineup: Xander’s back

The WBC is over and spring training’s one off day has passed. Let’s rock. We’re finally in the home stretch now, kids. The regular season — real Major League Baseball games — are almost within our grasp. Until then, we continue to fumble on in this thing called life, laid low by virulent illnesses borne of the freezing early spring weather. Maybe that’s just me, but I doubt it. Anyhow here’s today’s lineup against the Pirates (1:05 p.m., WEEI). Xander’s back! Dustin Pedroia, 2B Andrew Benintendi, LF Mookie Betts, RF Hanley Ramirez, DH Mitch Moreland, 1B Xander...

Bold(ish) predictions for the 2017 Red Sox

Bold(ish) predictions for the 2017 Red Sox

Everyone likes some bold predictions. The season is under two weeks away, so it’s that time of year for team previews, roster projection and predictions. I already handled the roster projection side of things earlier this morning, and now I’m going with another classic preseason article: The bold predictions. No, it’s not an original idea, but it is a chance for you to let me know that I’m a moron, and who among us doesn’t enjoy that? Andrew Benintendi — not Mookie Betts — will be Team MVP I’ll start with the one that I believe the least, but one that I am talking myself...

Red Sox vs. Orioles lineup: It would be cool if our pitchers stopped getting hurt

True story! Yeah so the Red Sox are down to five viable starting pitchers, the fifth of whom — Kyle Kendrick — is set to start today. Our fearless editor says not to panic, but he’s headed out to the Grand Canyon and can’t tell us what to do. Candy for dinner? Candy for dinner. Anyhow, Sam Travis was scratched from today’s lineup after taking a pitch the knee yesterday, meaning the following starting nine for today’s 1:05 p.m. tilt at JetBlue Park (WEEI): Marco Hernandez, 2B Pablo Sandoval, 3B Mookie Betts, RF Hanley Ramirez, DH Jackie Bradley Jr., CF Allen Craig,...

A changing of the guard in the Red Sox clubhouse

With David Ortiz gone, the Red Sox are set to undergo a period of change in terms of their face of the franchise There is no bigger storyline for the Red Sox as we head into the season than what the team will look like sans David Ortiz. That is a bigger deal than whether or not Mookie Betts can build upon his MVP-caliber season. It’s a bigger deal than whether or not Chris Sale can actually succeed in his first season with Boston. It’s a bigger deal than whether or not David Price can bounce back. Ortiz’ absence will be felt throughout the organization, and it goes without saying that...

Red Sox vs. Twins lineup: The battle for the Mayor’s Cup

Red Sox vs. Twins lineup: The battle for the Mayor’s Cup

It’s, like, more important than the World Series. Every spring, the Twins and Red Sox play each other numerous times, since both clubs train in Fort Myers. Every spring, the team with the most wins against the other wins the Mayor’s Cup. I don’t want to say it’s the most important trophy, but rumors have it that Mookie Betts and Eduardo Rodriguez stayed home from the WBC because the Mayor’s Cup was more important.* *Note: This is not at all factual. Actually, they don’t even really compete for the trophy anymore, as our friends over at Twinkie Town explain. Either way, it’s a...

Red Sox at Twins lineup: There will be hangovers

I do declare that there may have been some drinking last night. Yesterday the bullpen got lit up. They were hardly the only ones. The lineups were posted late enough to suggest a... slower moving organization, but today we see a big league-caliber lineup with the possible exception of Chris Young at DH... which, against a righty, is a spring specialty, much love to Young, as always.
