Will the Red Sox, coming off consecutive last-place finishes under John Farrell, be tempted to make a quick change if they start slowly?
Addressing some smaller, but not-so-insignificant questions for the Red Sox as spring training approaches.
Dave Dombrowski's in-season approach will probably be different than Ben Cherington's. How different? Let us count the ways . . .
3yIt's Boston. It's Miami. It's not Celtics and Heat, but the Sox and Marlins. Should make for an interesting series as the Sox try to right the ship . . . again.
3yFor Jon Lester, every start is starting to feel the same. He's not dominating, but he's not getting any breaks either. Three no decisions in a row.
3yDaniel Nava was scheduled to play for Boston on Sunday, but a sore hand kept him out of the lineup.
3yThere were a few questionable calls during the 9th inning that got Bobby Valentine particularly upset, and may have been the difference in the end.
3yAlfredo Aceves has reason to be upset after giving up the game-winning run on Sunday, but he's electing to stay positive.
3yBlame the umpiring all you want, but regardless, the Red Sox had their chances to beat the Nationals on Sunday and failed.
3yThe Red Sox leaned on Jon Lester to help them avoid a sweep at the hands of the Nationals, but he wasn't enough as the Sox fell, 4-3.
