OTM Open Thread 3/5: It is Tuesday

Photo by Maddie Malhotra/Boston Red Sox/ And then there were two...(ish) Happy Tuesday. The Boras Two (and a few others) remain unsigned. On the bright side, the Baltimore Orioles could really use a pitcher so them sitting this out too is a slight reduction in strength of the AL East. A tiny boost for the Red Sox. 20 years ago - March 5, 2004 - Nomar Garciaparra was struck with a ball in batting practice and would miss a large part of the season before famously being traded to the Chicago Cubs at the trade deadline. Garret Whitlock and the Red Sox take on the Tampa...

Things We’re Excited About In 2024: The Next Chapter In Trevor’s Story

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ The future might still be bright for Trevor Story and the 2024 Red Sox. Trevor Story’s spent the majority of his career being overlooked. Some of that has to do with circumstance, some of it has to do with rotten luck, and some of it has to do with the way he produces value as a player. Of course, in 2023, he hardly produced any value as a player, so perhaps he’s rightfully being overlooked going into this year. In some minds, he’s cashed, and the analysis ends right there.

Red Sox News & Links: Injury Updates On Vaughn Grissom, Jarren Duran

Photo by Barry Chin/The Boston Globe via Plus, are we overlooking Roberto Perez? There hasn’t been much chatter about Roberto Perez, the steady-gloved veteran catcher who signed a minor league deal with the Sox back in December. That’s because just about everyone has assumed the catching duties would once again be split by Connor Wong and Reese McGuire as Kyle Teel continues to sprinkle some seasoning on his game down in the minors.

OTM Open Thread 3/4: It is Monday

Photo by Leon Halip/ The pitching program? Happy Monday. Matt Chapman signed with the San Francisco Giants to something more akin to a pillow contract with quick opt-outs. The Boras pitchers remain unemployed. And there is a development at the Red Sox camp: Kutter Crawford hit 97 on the gun in his start today. He said he added 8-10 lbs and it’s only made him feel stronger.Last year, his 4-seamer averaged 93.6.Houck has apparently seen the biggest velo jump in camp (per Cora). Touched 97 yesterday as well.pic.twitter.com/uWNfKkSIeR— Tyler Milliken ⚾️...
