Xander: 'Strongest Ever Going Into A Season'

Xander Bogaerts
Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts is feeling pretty good this off-season—in fact, the best he's ever felt going into a season. Said the 22-year old, "This is probably the strongest I've ever felt going into a season -- and by far. I'm definitely real excited for the season." This is music to every Sox fan's ears. After a disappointing first full season in The Show, a little bit of the lustre came off the Bogaerts brand. With a steady position and good health, this could be the year he breaks through to true stardom. Bogaerts has been training at the same Arizona facility used by teammate Dustin Pedroia—who will also be fully healthy for the first time in a while.
