Red Sox catcher Blake Swihart and first baseman Travis Shaw warmed up a cold January night with great baseball talk in Bangor last night.

After signing autographs and posing for some pictures with fans, Swihart and Shaw sat down on stage at the Gracie Theatre at Husson University.

Among the topics discussed...new Sox pitchers David Price and Craig Kimbrel. The great finish by the team last year fueled by the younger players. The impact of Dustin Pedroia as the leader of the team. The David Ortiz final season ahead. The trials and tribulations of getting called up to the majors and the sent down.

Both Swihart and Shaw can't wait for the season to start and both think the Sox can a great season ahead.
