Position Players Officially Arrive To Spring Training
Today, Red Sox position players officially reported to Ft. Myers for Spring Training. For the first time ever in a Red Sox uniform, the power trio of Adrian Gonzalez (right), Carl Crawford, and David Ortiz are all together. Adrian Gonzalez, however, had actually been in Ft. Myers since last Wednesday, even before pitchers and catchers officially reported. Mike Cameron is happily accepting his new role as a reserve player, the first time in his career that he has been one. Also, the duo of Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford are together for the first time. I am very excited for the upcoming season, and the first official team workout is on Saturday.
