The Red Seat: Episode 107-Opportunity Knocks for Michael Chavis

Spring is here and Chavis is taking full advantage.

MLB: Spring Training-Minnesota Twins at Boston Red Sox Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Red Sox have now played sixteen real(ish) games of baseball in the Grapefruit League. This is good news! Now I have actual baseball to watch and listen to as I live my life. Hilariously enough this team is 6-10, good enough for last place in the Grapefruit League proving once again that spring training stats don’t matter. What does matter is trends that we can spot during spring training that might tell us something about the upcoming year. Two things have been very apparent to me. One, Michael Chavis can really hit and will force his way to Boston at some point this year. Two, Darwinzon Hernández is absolutely filthy and with the added uncertainty of losing Steven Wright for the first 80 games as well as the post season we will certainly see him out of the pen this year. Mookie Betts doesn’t care about these games based on his mic’d up inning with ESPN and neither should you, but at least we can watch some young guys play and see some sunny weather. Bring on baseball.
