John Farrell held a 50 minute team meeting where he centered on his team moving on from last year.
We leadoff or spring training coverage with the opinion. Off topic for the first time working with additional players and the pitchers. A little weird seeing him with the Red Sox with a bat in his -- his big moment though came before the workout here along with ownership and that was the entire team. -- in front of the groups. -- as their manager for the first time. -- meeting lasted about fifteen minutes in the overall message without being professional and moving on from last year. That first conversation first talk is a way to possibly set the tone which I think it was clear. But the thing that we want emphasizes that it's a matter it's not -- what we do on the field and not what we're talking about. We're hopeful weigh in with every intent on our actions speak certainly more volume than -- words. You professional bill Tomlinson is as the rules that that he goes by that was the same thing when he was here as pitching coach so that's a good way to. To start camp knowing that everybody even it even owners and front offices are -- -- this is as a fresh start. Overall it -- -- a little more relaxed this year for more on the team's attitude we bring in Mike -- To find out more really about that club holds clubhouse culture and how they tried to turn it around. Mike just on the Red Sox are winning titles on they -- personality -- to me who had more fun and Kevin Millar and Johnny Damon Pedro Martinez and of course the David and Manny -- but as we've documented quite a bit. The Red Sox lost their women to. Outsmarting themselves a little day 2011 collapse in September fall by a 93 loss season a year ago -- the Sox reaching back. The pass to try to refine the formula for success. The Red Sox approach this off season what about signing the biggest names are spending the most dollars. Was about rebuilding this clubhouse that has been fractured in recent years I haven't character. Loads of it. That was on display on the first day of full squad workout. A lot of the guys. You see him around game there there's guys that you know for love to play the game day. They've been life they like you know tough out there's and it was the place so. You know it's it's going to be fun playing well lately look real lot of good luck we've got through the years that this -- clue about that is there's everything. He's got good it's going to be around. Chemistry alone won't win titles but that -- can push a talented team over the top. The Sox brought in guys like Johnny Gomes Shane Victorino and Ryan Dempster players who know how to have fun while playing the game the right way. We'll get inside that clubhouse and you know I kind of figured some things that it really goes all -- up. I guess revised to eight yards and a lawyer and seven and quiet through three time five years you know. 2000 and we want me. Think they -- now that was not a resting but you know what we play together. That was one of those things that we did that chemistry is very important but you know I think in the day when you win. Finishes there you know these are -- John Farrell certainly recognizes the importance of it and while I'll have plenty of fires to put out over the course of the season. A clubhouse that can take care of itself on like what happened at the end for Terry Francona or Bobby Valentine. If they critical component there's. An atmosphere that's created -- -- a clubhouse that. One of -- One of encouragement woman. -- one another accountable. And I think if -- since you're here for one another and Anderson here but work and I go about it. I think that's what. Those -- the attributes to come clean up what chemistry. The -- so. I think you go a long way that processes -- to be done and have the talent comes close to equaling the character the Sox may -- just what Larry Lucchino insisted. Prove the naysayers wrong.
