David Ortiz, who has no visible qualms with the media, is planning on taking it slow this spring training. He also feels optimistic about his progression from his right Achilles tendon injury. (Rob Bradford; WEEI.com)

"Can I have future Red Sox catcher for 200, Mr. Trebek. Lean, athletic, switch-hitting catcher. 'Who is Blake Swihart?'"(Matt Huegel; ESPNBoston.com)

Take David Price's fastball and Barry Zito's curve, and you get Henry Owens' desires for his repertoire. (Andrew Pentis; MiLB Prospective)

Gordon Edes continues his "5 Questions" running story with the penultimate question: Is there enough star power? (Gordon Edes; ESPNBoston.com)
