Mookie Betts shattered his high expectations in 2016, and now he’s setting himself up for a ridiculously high bar to clear in 2017. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

Chris Sale is good at a lot of things, with one of them apparently being hitting opponents. (Matt Kory; BP Boston)

There is still a long way to go, but Dave Dombrowski seems like he’s leaning towards the two veterans for the last two rotation spots. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

Now that David Ortiz is gone, what is the lineup going to look like? (Christopher Smith; Masslive)

The lineup should still be very good, but some stability at the corner infield spots would go a long way. (Ian Browne; RedSox.com)

One of those spots will be manned by Pablo Sandoval. Here are Dombrowski’s expectations for his third baseman. (Darren Hartwell; NESN)
