Here we are five days before Opening Day. Spring training battles have played out, rosters finalized and before the ceremonious start I thought I might revisit a concept that came to the surface when I wrote my spring training and Red Sox previews.
Spring Training hit its stride this past weekend and while last week’s column focused on recapping what had happened over the winter; this week looks towards the future. Red Sox fans here are a few storylines to keep an eye on as we lead up to Opening Day.
I tried addressing the subject a couple weeks ago, but I don’t believe I gave it its due diligence. It’s been a few weeks now since Michael Sam, former Missouri Tiger defense lineman and NFL hopeful, announced that he is gay.
Months have passed since the transactions of the early winter, and much can be forgotten during the lull post holidays up until spring training. With exhibitions about to begin I thought I would spend my first baseball write-up recapping story lines across the league.
The NBA trade deadline came and went and per usual basketball fans waited all day for a major trade that never happened. We saw a tiny cluster of small level players who will soon be relocating, but most moves were salary dumps or minor tweaks.
