Sox shake things up and it looks good

Mary Schwalm / Associated Press

The Red Sox have shaken up the roster a little bit in the last few days. Blake Swihart was sent down to AAA and Christian Vazquez was recalled.

The rest of the moves were with pitchers. Noe Ramirez was sent down and Heath Hembree was called up and pitched well in his first appearance, throwing 3.2 innings and striking out four. Joe Kelly was also added to the 15 day DL with a shoulder injury.

The 2016 Red Sox: Fun and Frustrating

Ron Schwane / Associated Press

Two weeks into the 2016 season and all I can really say about this iteration of the Red Sox is that they're fun to watch. Frustrating, but fun. I am actually yelling at my TV as I write this during today's game.

Red Sox Opening Day has many positive implications

Tony Dejak / Associated Press

It's finally Opening Day for the Red Sox! I'm happily writing this as I watch the game. After a postpone due to snow and cold weather on Monday, the Sox took the field this afternoon against the Cleveland Indians.

The game-time temperature was still pretty cold, at 33 degrees,  the players are all bundled up, David Ortiz was even wearing a hoodie at the beginning of the game.
