In a blog post earlier this week, I noted that I should be more excited about the Boston Red Sox this season. This is my 22nd year as a Sawx fan and for the first time, I’m living in New England on Opening Day. But the locals are known for being pretty demanding of their sports teams and maybe I’m starting to fall into line, because for the last few months I’ve had a hard time getting past this team’s postseason shortcomings. But it’s spring, October is a long way away and at least for now there’s reason to be excited about the 2018 edition of the Red Sox. The biggest of those reasons is depth.
