The 2017 outfield are young, play aggressive offensively, defensively and on the base paths. They are the talented core of this Red Sox team and, who knows, they just may give that great 1975 outfield a run for their money.
“Is he capable of pitching with the intensity and ability he’s shown in the past and can he deal with the pressure of playing for a fan base that expects him to win the majority of games he starts?”
Price needs to step up big. No more rehabbing. It’s time for him to get out there and help them win ball games. This Red Sox team has a lot of heart and that’s exactly what they need from David Price.

David “Big Papi” Ortiz has written a book, which will be coming out to the public in a short while. His comments about management are scathing and a bit out of character for one of the all-time great hitters in Red Sox history and a guy loved by everyone in the Nation.
If you or your Dad are a life-long Red Sox fan, you know the “Impossible Dream” season of 1967 was not a dream but a reality that remains vividly etched in our memories for all time. Surprise your Dad this Father’s Day with an autographed copy of Rico’s book!

Chaz Scoggins, the former Lowell Sun sports writer and now official scorer for all Red Sox home games, and I have collaborated on a new book detailing the magical 1967 “Impossible Dream” season. It will foster many great memories for those of you who experienced that year and an exciting Red Sox history lesson for those of younger generations.
We all knew that Big Pappy was going to be missed. His clutch hitting and his leadership is second to none. The pressure is on Hanley Ramirez to have a big home run and RBI year. Is he the type of hitter who can carry a team? Can Betts? Can Dustin Pedroia carry the team for a long length of time?
