Trevor Story has the range to play shortstop, but more than a few folks are wondering about his ability to throw from that spot on the field. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic)

Really, it’s not just Jen McCaffrey at The Athletic; Alex Speier at the Boston Globe was asking the same question. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

I really look forward to the day when I can go on the internet, see another story about how the Red Sox let Xander Bogaerts go and not feel sad. It still hasn’t happened with Mookie Betts, so maybe it never will. Anyway, if you want to feel bummed out, here you go. (Chad Finn; Boston Globe)

To compound things, remember Jeter Downs, a headliner of the Betts trade? Yeah, he’s gone now. (Chris Cotillo; MassLive)

Let’s not be too miserable though. Things could get better, right? (Chad Jennings; The Athletic)

Adding Kenley Jansen should make the bullpen better and Tanner Houck played a role in bringing him to Boston. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic)

But could Houck and Garrett Whitlock join forces to really kick the bullpen into another gear? (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)
