Fort Notes: Farrell expects 'very good' rotation
Mon, 11 Feb 2013|
Jessica Moran and Sean McAdam run down the notes from the day at spring training
There's a couple of notes for -- as we take you look now. More notes from the day we start with John letting us know that Felix he brought in. Craig Breslow are going to be held back -- fit for precautionary reasons they're feeling a little discomfort in their shoulders. Again this is strictly precautionary right now also Shane Victorino will be participating in the it will be a classic. That means not only get to work with him for a couple weeks that they just signed this off season. He will spend a lot of that time with Jacoby Ellsbury in the outfield. Well if they can get used to each other's brains and finally -- captain. He is here Jason Varitek was outgoing but of course. He's not playing anymore you retired last year he is working. -- the team's front office -- of that naming a captain now isn't on his to do -- just yet but getting the pitchers that are on this team right now back on the right track. That is right there at the top. Yes it's. Well they're certainly a sense of familiarity. So. To be able to tap back into those previous experiences -- we were doing that in. We'd be crazy not to I can't guarantee you that makes them. Eighteen game winner -- twenty game winners but looking at the names on paper there's every reason to think and we should confidently think that this is going to be a very good things. So for letting us know at this rotation could be pretty -- on and they certainly have some of the resonates in the past to do it what do you think about this. Rotation going into the season. Right now while John Carroll mentioned a sense of familiarity and maybe even comfort I think that exists this spring and it wasn't here a year ago. Flashback a year ago you had Bobby Valentine who wasn't familiar with the roster. And Bob McClure was turns out. Was familiar with -- manager -- temperatures. So there really wasn't anybody to lean on. Win mechanic problems. Flared up or something with their delivery they had no one was an institutional base of knowledge of what they had done to succeed in the past now that got John Farrell. He's -- different role than he was when they last worked with him in 2000. Ten he's not pitching coaches the manager and as such he can't focus as intently. But he does have won the others to help out and he does have that background I think that has to come in handy. And should help the pitchers.
