Farrell: Cespedes Could Play Either CF Or RF

What?!? It's probably just a feint—but Red Sox manager John Farrell stated today that Yoenis Cespedes is willing to play either center field or right field. This puzzling bit of news came on the heels of the The Panda's introductory press conference. With Hanley Ramirez penciled in for left field, everyone was assuming that—with a likely Cespedes trade for pitching—Rusney Castillo would patrol center and one of about 68 potential players would man right. Not so fast, OutFieldLogJam Breath! Again, this is probably just a stall until Ben Cherington can "package" Cespedes in a deal with prospects for a front-line starter. Is it Spring Training yet?
