On Sunday, Shane Victorino was thrown out trying to score from second on a passed ball. Although it was an aggressive baserunning play by the outfielder that just didn’t work, it might also be a harbinger of what’s to come in 2013 for the Red Sox.
Manager John Farrell has made it no secret that he likes his teams to be aggressive on the bases when it’s the right time. So although Red Sox lineups have traditionally been more power-based — and not to mention that Fenway Park trends that way, too — Boston may have a new dynamic to it’s offensive attack this year.
