No right (field) answer

FORT MYERS — The more Rusney Castillo plays, the more he starts to remind you of the way Shane Victorino plays.Full throttle on defense, with an astute first step, a near-reckless abandon for his well-being when it comes to acknowledging unyielding surfaces such as outfield walls and a strong, accurate arm, Castillo in right field plays just like Victorino did in 2013, as well as earlier in his career.

Decision looms on Shane Victorino and Rusney Castillo

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Boston Red Sox break camp on Saturday and, as of Monday, Shane Victorino remains the starting right-fielder. What about Rusney Castillo? "To be determined," manager John Farrell said. When camp opened, Farrell said that Victorino would be the team’s starting right fielder if healthy. Monday night, he was in the starting lineup in right field for the third consecutive game. Until this weekend, he had not played two straight games in right.

Daily Red Sox Links: David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, Garin Cecchini

Today's links look at an angry Shane Victorino, a healthy(?) Christian Vazquez, and a clutch Rusney Castillo. David Ortiz wrote about his legacy, among other things, for Derek Jeter's Player Tribune yesterday. It's a fantastic read. (David Ortiz, The Players Tribune) Shane Victorino was fired up yesterday, too, as he responded to those who claimed he threw Mookie Betts under the bus with comments earlier this week. (Scott Lauber; Boston Herald) Dustin Pedroia has certainly dealt with some injuries in recent years, but is that the only reason for his power outage? (Sahadev Sharma; Baseball...

Are Victorino Comments Worthy Of Firestorm?

()Ladies and gentleman, we finally have our first Spring Training controversy. Talk radio is going bananas today over comments made yesterday by Shane Victorino to a Philadelphia newspaper. Basically, Victorino said he would love to have Cole Hamels in Carmine Hose—essentially no matter what the price. That last part is the rub—construed by some as throwing outfield competitor Mookie Betts under the bus.
