Daniel Nava is thinking of switching from switch hitting, which either makes him half as useful or twice as able to concentrate on making contact from one side of the plate instead of missing repeatedly from both. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

Which is fine, because Red Sox prospects are looking good... (Scott Lauber; Boston Herald)

... as Winter League playoffs start ... (Sox Prospects)

.. and Rusney Castillo and company are heading to the Red Sox rookie program. (Ricky Doyle; NESN)

And speaking of looking... less... good, the Sox may have to sell low on Jackie Bradley, Jr. (or not sell him at all.) ... (Jason Mastrodonato; MassLive)

... while their arbitration cases look like they will cost them much more than they were hoping for. (Scott Lauber; Boston Herald)
