Players are reporting early and not just pitchers and catchers. One of the Red Sox’ newest members, Adrian Gonzalez, was spotted a week ahead of schedule working out on the training grounds on Wednesday.
Even though spring training has yet to begin, there is still much to discuss in Red Sox Nation. Jonathan Papelbon has reported to spring training spouting words of confidence, saying that he is ready for the heavy workload in Boston this season. Will he keep his closing duties throughout the year, or will Bobby Jenks take over in the bullpen?
The younger players have yet to strut their stuff in Fort Myers, but it’s always interesting to see what prospects make a name for themselves in spring training action. Are there players in particular that you have your eye on, Sox fans?
Then there’s the competition. The Orioles are looking more and more legitimate every day, and they recently signed another newcomer by the name of Vladimir Guerrero. Will 2011 finally be the year that Baltimore rises from the bottom of the AL East?
