Will Andrew Miller Hold Down A Spot in The Sox 2012 Rotation?
As of Sunday 3/4/2012 the Red Sox are undefeated in Spring Training contests. Although 2 of their 3 wins came against college teams (including a 25-0 throbbing of Northeastern) the Sox showed positive signs that were more important than the scores of these exhibition games. Andrew Miller threw very well in his first outing against Minnesota on Sunday, supporting the theory that he could squeeze his way into the starting rotation. Mike Aviles is excelling at Shortstop, which is the biggest question mark among Boston’s field positions. Hot SS prospect Jose Iglesias has been getting some game action as well, giving Sox fans hope that the prodigy can make it to the Majors and contribute to the ball club this season. The one negative note has been the absence of expensive outfielder Carl Crawford, who is nursing a wrist injury he suffered during off-season workouts. The good news is the Crawford is scheduled to have his wrist examined on Monday and hopes to be given the OK to swing a bat again. All in all, positive vibes are resonating from Ft. Myers as new manager Bobby Valentine begins his campaign as the Sox skipper.
