Red Sox signings show youthful exuberance

When the Red Sox opted not to go whole hog on bringing back 31-year-old Jon Lester, that was their tell.When the Red Sox opted to go whole hog on signing 19-year-old Yoan Moncada, that was when we knew they were going all in.Together, the team’s offseason decisions on Lester and Moncada, as well as their sensible deals for Pablo Sandoval, Hanley Ramirez, Rick Porcello and Wade Miley, give credence to the vision to which this organization has pledged its allegiance:

A pitch for Opening Day

A pitch for Opening Day

FORT MYERS — If John Farrell waited until March 27 a year ago to pronounce Jon Lester as the Opening Day starter, there’s no telling how long it could take this year.The suspense will surely be worth it considering that, unlike with Lester last year, there is no obvious candidate from among the Big 5 this season.Rick Porcello and Clay Buchholz are the likeliest candidates but there was little guidance from the first posting of 2015 pitching slots yesterday.

Pitching set for college DH, Grapefruit opener

2015 BYB community Tigers prospect #17: Spencer Turnbull

Another big right-hander from the SEC, Turnbull is the most highly-touted pitcher of the Tigers' 2014 draft picks. A lot of people were surprised when the Tigers selected high school outfielder Derek Hill in the first round of the 2014 draft. Known for spending most of their high draft picks on experienced college pitchers, the toolsy prep center fielder was a bit of a deviation from their normal style. This isn't the first time they had done so in the David Chadd era -- Rick Porcello, Jacob Turner, and Nick Castellanos are previous examples -- but the move still got some buzz and praise...
