Travis Shaw Making A Strong Case For Going North

It's probably a lock that he comes North anyway, but Travis Shaw didn't do anything on Sunday to diminish his chances. In Boston's cardiac 8-7 win over the hapless Orioles (winless so far this Spring), Shaw went 3-3, with two RBIs and a run scored. He came into the game as a DH replacement for David Ortiz. Also shining in the win was Hanley Ramirez, who went 2-2 with an RBI and a stolen base. Separate and distinct from his defensive play at first base, Ramirez is 4-8 so far in Grapefruit League play.
