Mookie Betts could break out this year

Charles Krupa/APBefore I get into this, here's what I had to say about one Mookie Betts in an article for Razzball a few days ago: Well, if I don’t ask, there will be pitchforks and rioting, so here I go (hold me!)… Mookie Betts.

FORT MYERS, Fla. — David Ortiz moves well for an old guy. Ortiz and several other Boston Red Sox players participated in conditioning drills at the end of Monday’s workout at JetBlue Park.

Attempting to Forecast Yoan Moncada Statistically

The general consensus around baseball is that Yoan Moncada is that he’s among the best prospects out there. The newest Red Sox prospect’s bat speed and power both grade out as plus, and scouts believe he has the physical tools to be an asset on defense as well. Our very own Kiley McDaniel weighed in on Moncada several times this past winter, […]

Mookie And Rusney Will Compete For CF Job

Mookie (L), Rusney (R)—(USAToday Photo)Apparently, John Farrell was serious about Shane Victorino being his starting right-fielder.

Looks Like Buchholz On Opening Day In Philly

As the Grapefruit schedule plays out, it appears more and more likely that Clay Buchholz will be Boston's Opening Day starter in Philadelphia on April 6th. As The Providence Journal's Tim Britton points out, the rotation after Buchholz is Rick Porcello, Wade Miley, Joe Kelly and Justin Masterson.

Twitter Mirror Hits Sox Spring Training

The Twitter Mirror made a stop in Fort Myers to snap some selfies of the Boston Red Sox players - and they clearly enjoyed it. Let's look at the tape: It started out fairly calm, with Rusney Castillo and Garin Cecchini just happy to be here. Pretty sure Mookie Betts' eyebrows are on fleek (no idea what that means). Edward Mujica's beard is already in mid-season form. Clearly, the...

Rusney Castillo, Mookie Betts To Split Center Field Duties In Spring Games

With a little over a month until Opening Day, the Boston Red Sox still don’t have a starting center fielder. But in this case, it’s actually a good thing. Boston has some healthy competition between Rusney Castillo and Mookie Betts for the job in center, and both are worthy candidates. But both of them also have little MLB experience — Betts only...
