This year, spring training for the Boston Red Sox will be equal parts fresh start and same old, same old.
There should be a different mood at Red Sox camp than there was in 2012, when the bad vibes of the 2011 season were still prevalent. The Red Sox have a new manager and new players who weren't around for the club's lost season in 2012, so it should be easier for everyone to look forward rather than back.
Beyond that, it's going to be business as usual. The established players will be looking to get their reps in before Opening Day, and the not-so-established players will be looking to prove they belong.
As there will be at every other camp across baseball, there will be players with much to gain and much to lose at Red Sox camp. Here's a look at eight guys in particular to keep an eye on.
