Daily Red Sox Links: Opening Day, Michael Chavis, Bobby Dalbec

Photo by Kathryn Riley/ Ready or not, Opening Day is just about here. The Red Sox are as ready as they can possibly be. We hope. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe) With spring training coming to a close on Tuesday, the Red Sox solidified their roster to start the season. Chad Jennings looks at the groups and gives a bunch of thoughts on all of it. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic) Part of that solidifying involved optioning Michael Chavis since Franchy Cordero is indeed ready for the start of the season. Chavis isn’t thrilled, and that’s the attitude Alex Cora and the team...

Previewing the 2021 season from A-Z

Hit the ball! | Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Let’s do this, Sesame Street-style. The headline says it all; no introduction necessary. To the letters! Always Be Churning The Red Sox will not win the World Series this year. Sorry to offend. This is a bridge year, and should see a fair amount of players shuffling on and off the team. This isn’t just between Triple-A and the majors, but between the Sox and other teams. You can be pretty sure that at some point this year Matt Barnes will be trade bait, and maybe Michael Chavis as well. It’s okay. The Sox are in motion...

How do the Red Sox finish out their bullpen?

How do the Red Sox finish out their bullpen?

Photo by Ed Zurga/ It’s a complicated question. Originally, the plan for this post was to just do a regular prediction of the Opening Day roster, but if we’re being honest it really doesn’t feel like there’s all that much suspense. On the position player side, the only question that remains is whether or not Franchy Cordero will be ready. If he is, Michael Chavis will be optioned. If he’s not, Chavis will be on the Opening Day bench. I can’t really provide much insight into whether or not he will be ready, so there’s not much to add beyond that. Christian...

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ Eduardo Rodriguez has been pretty great this spring, aside from a tough outing on Monday. However, that tough outing may be more beneficial in the long term. (Ian Browne; MLB.com) Franchy Cordero SZN is just getting started and that could mean a lot of things. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic) Michael Chavis and Bobby Dalbec continued to impress on Monday. Is it too early to start the Chavis for most improved player campaign? Asking for myself. (Christopher Smith; MassLive) Chaim Bloom has shown he is willing to trade guys and if the...
