Tom Caron: Nothing wrong with Ortiz being truthful

David Ortiz knows that he may have to leave Boston, and you should know it, too.
BOSTON – David Ortiz fired up the hot stove last week when he told a Boston television station he’d like a contract extension...

Tom Caron: ‘Play ball’ in the pending forecast
Optimism shines with the Red Sox soon to begin spring training.

BOSTON — The equipment truck has left Fenway Park. Spring might not be in the air just yet, but the end of this long, cold winter is in sight. Celebrating the departure, a truck full of gloves, bats and weightlifting equipment is a uniquely New England concept. It’s easy to ridicule the idea of getting excited over the hauling of gear, yet it is as much an annual milestone as Groundhog Day...

Tom Caron: Buchholz has talent, but must prove his durability
Boston’s talented right-hander has yet to throw 200 innings or make 30 starts in a single season.

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Clay Buchholz thinks he’s ready to shoulder the load. Of course, Buchholz thinks that every year. He thought it last year when he began the season with his best first half ever. He was 9-0 with a 1.71 ERA in early June, a (very) early favorite for the AL Cy Young Award and a shoo-in to start the All-Star Game...

Tom Caron: John Farrell’s protecting his pitchers
Boston’s manager knows it’s a long season, especially if you plan to play in October.
By TOM CARON

The Red Sox are being cautious. They’ve been playing baseball since last Thursday, when the lads from Northeastern and Boston College got a taste of the big leagues at JetBlue Park. That doubleheader rolled into the first of many games with the Minnesota Twins, and the daily routine of Grapefruit League baseball is under way...

Tom Caron: Red Sox armed for a repeat run
Boston’s pitching could make it the first club to win back-to-back titles since the 2000 Yankees.
The Red Sox hit southwest Florida this spring with the swagger earned from a 97-win season and a relentless championship march through October. But it’s been a sloppy start to the exhibition schedule for Boston. On Saturday, they lost a pair of games to the Baltimore Orioles. After losing 7-2 in the first half of a home-and-home doubleheader, Boston returned to its home field for a 13-2 drubbing by the Birds...

Tom Caron: Red Sox fans have good reasons for great expectations
One year ago, a world title was a far-fetched notion.
Meet the new Sox. Same as the old Sox.

Next Monday, the Red Sox begin defense of their World Series championship when they take the field in Baltimore. There are not many drastic changes for the team that won it all a year ago, but the expectations are completely different. Last April, most Sox fans would’ve been happy with a .500 season. This year, anything less than a playoff appearance would be a major disappointment...

Tom Caron: Repeat for Red Sox is even tougher in baseball’s best division
The AL East is a beast again, loaded with very good teams.

By TOM CARON
A winter that has dragged on far too long came to a figurative end Monday when the Red Sox returned to work. If the boys of summer are playing, those snow banks out by the mall have got to be close to melting. Right?...

Tom Caron: Sox identity emerging

Despite Monday’s loss, the Sox are starting to resemble 2013 team.
The 2013 Red Sox season was a story of triumph over tragedy. It culminated in the World Series trophy being placed at the Boston Marathon finish line, at the very spot where the city was rocked by bombings some six months earlier.

Boston connected with that Red Sox team like few before. It was a resilient Band of Bearded Brothers who made comebacks and dramatic walk-off wins a common occurrence.

Tom Caron: Growing pains for Red Sox rookies

Jackie Bradley Jr. and Xander Bogaerts have plenty of upside, but are showing their youth.
The Red Sox had Monday off, their third off-day this season. It’s a much-needed day of rest for a team that has played 26 games in the first 28 days of the season, and spent one of those off-days being feted at the White House...

Tom Caron: How long must we wait for another title?

Success creates high expectations for Boston teams.
Cheers are usually hard to come by if you’re working in left field at Fenway Park and wearing the uniform of a team other than the Red Sox. That wasn’t the case for Nate Moulter Saturday afternoon. Moulter, a Red Sox employee clad in a Boston Bruins jersey, was working in the Green Monster scoreboard, updating fans on the Bruins–Montreal Canadiens playoff game at TD Garden...
