Opening the Notebook: Extension talks, Kimbrel news and a new pitch

A few news pieces from down in Fort Myers It’s Tuesday, which means we have just three more practice-only days before games begin down in Florida. There are still things happening before the games, though, and Monday in particular brought a few interesting pieces of news. Extension talks are beginning with Chris Sale and Xander Bogaerts We didn’t get many details, which is unsurprising, but Tom Werner and John Henry met with the media on Monday and the biggest news to come from those conversations was that the team was indeed holding conversations with both Chris Sale and Xander...

Daily Red Sox Links: Chris Sale, Xander Bogaerts, Christian Vazquez

In today’s links we experience regret about letting Jon Lester go and analyze what might happen transaction wise for Chris Sale, Xander Bogaerts and Christian Vazquez. Jon Lester could have re-signed with the Red Sox but the front office may have made that more difficult than it needed to be. (John Tomase; WEEI) Hopefully that won’t happen with another left-handed ace by the name of Chris Sale. (Chris Cotillo; MassLive) While Sale mulls over his options, the pitching side of things shouldn’t take a hit. (Ken Rosenthal; The Athletic) ($$) Xander Bogaerts is another soon-to-be free...

Xander Bogaerts is a free agent after this 2019 season, and he acknowledges that it’s hard not to consider an extension given what’s happening on the free agent market. (John Tomase; WEEI) He’s not the only soon-to-be-free-agent looking at the current market, either. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic) Mookie Betts is just an asburd athlete. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) Nobody really knows what to expect from Dustin Pedroia, but he spoke with the media on Friday and reiterated that he expects to play and lead off on Opening Day. (Ian Browne; RedSox.com) Alex Cora compared Pedroia to a former...

One Big Question: Can we expect Xander Bogaerts to maintain his power gains?

He became the hitter we all wanted in 2018, but can it stick around. Welcome to Over the Monster’s One Big Question series. For those unfamiliar, this is something of a season roster preview where over the next 40(ish) (week)days we’ll be taking a look at each player on the 40-man roster prior to the season. If changes are made to the roster between now and Opening Day, we’ll cover the newly added players.
