Clearly the future of the that side of the field is already in good hands, but with first round draft pick Marcelo Mayer on board now as well, the Red Sox may not need to worry about who’s playing short for another 20 years. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Imagine having someone like Corey Seager or Brandon Crawford in your system. That may be what the Red Sox have in Mayer. (Chris Cotillo; MassLive)
