Mon, 27 Mar 2017 13:52:46 EDTIn a perfect world, Boston's deep and talented roster as currently constructed is one that could propel the team deep into October. But things are hardly ever perfect over the grind of a 162-game season.

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 16:23:50 EDTWith both teams trotting out similar lineups to the ones they'll have against each other on Opening Day in Boston, the Red Sox downed the Pirates, 10-7, in a Thursday afternoon slugfest at JetBlue Park.

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 23:19:13 EDTThe lights were on and the Yankees had most of their regulars in the lineup.

It certainly has developed players, sending guys like Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and now, Andrew Benintendi, just to mention the outfield.
