John Farrell can't say enough about what David Ortiz did for the Red Sox on Friday and what he's done in his career.
David Ortiz belts two homers to lift the Red Sox over the Orioles in extra innings, 5-3.
Christian Vazquez' arm has earned him a reputation within the league, and his growth has earned him a fan in John Farrell.
Sean McAdam has a 3-pack of Red Sox notes, including Rusney Castillo's workload, Brock Holt's progress and a fresh face at third base.
Among the things we learned Thursday: Workman should be shut down, Bradley HAS shut down, and Castillo should be playing.
