Red Sox Pitchers And Catchers Report Today

This is the day we've all been waiting for. Truck Day is cool, but "pitchers and catchers reporting" is tangible. There are masks and chest protectors and pitching rubbers and—most importantly—baseballs in the air. New backstop (and Andover, Massachusetts native) Ryan Hanigan arrived early, ready to learn a staff that—even if he'd been around last year—would be mostly brand new. This will be a true challenge for pitching coach Juan Nieves—trying to mold five #3 starters into an effective unified force. It all begins today. And none too soon!
