It’s almost time…

Yesterday in Lakeland, Florida a sea of green was all you could see inside Traditions Field. Shamrocks lined the bases and avid fans donned their best Irish green. Players got in on the fun as well with green jerseys, shamrock hats, and plain ole Irish style.

Yesterday marked the half way point for many in spring training. The Red Sox will open the season on April 6 in Philadelphia and then play the home opener on April 13 against the Nationals. Spring cannot come soon enough for our snow weary north and the Red Sox are a great reminder of warmer times.

Here is a link to their full schedule: http://boston.redsox.mlb.com/schedule/sortable.jsp?c_id=bos&year=2015

In 2014 the Red Sox followed up their 2013 World Series championship with a 71-91 – the fourth worst in the AL. They averaged only 3.91 runs per game, and tied for third worst in the league. The Red Sox are spending their money on some big hitters in the hope it will turn the clubhouse around in 2015.

Their biggest hope lies in their offense. Ortiz and Hanley are the big hitters with Napoli and Sandoval a close second. Pedroia should step up too now that his thumb is healthy. Don’t forget Betts and anyone else they pick up. Their rotation will need some work though if they have any change of contending this year.

The AL East is wide open and our Red Sox have a great chance of winning the division if they can improve their rotation and get some decent guys in the bullpen.

Seriously, can we say “Play Ball” yet?
