BRADENTON, Fla. — The start to Red Sox spring training wasn’t that good. Fourteen errors over the first 10 games. Thirty-seven walks, a 5.46 team ERA, a .227 team batting average, and a .307 on-base percentage.
While it’s widely accepted that spring training records don’t mean anything, that thinking is a little antiquated. It meant something last season to the Red Sox, didn’t it?
