From Jim Callis at Baseball America. Though seventh in draft order, the Red Sox are only twelfth in draft pool size -- at $6,830,200 -- due to a lack of compensation picks.
You know what it feels like to be there, it's just kind of a nostalgic little video I found.
Interesting look at how Farrell employed baserunning and defensive shifts in his time with the Jays. A few interesting surprises: apparently Jonny Gomes is a good base-runner; and we may see Pedroia lining up in the outfield.
Yeah, the Yankees could have a tough year. Also, the article survey's the Yankees recent success and makes the strongest, clearest case yet that free agents and big salaries, more than internal development, drove their recent surge of success.
Interesting that Mike Lowell is in uniform today at Red Sox workout. Another new instructor?— Ian Browne (@IanMBrowne) February 26, 2013
This is interesting. So is Mike Lowell going to be a coach of some sort? Lowell definitely seems to me high up there on the list of "good guys" that the Sox have elected to keep in the fold, with Pedro, Wakefield & Varitek. If Ian Browne doesn't know what his role is it must not have been formally announced.
