The Boston Red Sox went 86 seasons without winning a World Series. In 2013, however, they won their third championship in the past 10 years. Now it is 2014 and the Red Sox are looking to do something they have not done in nearly 100 years, win back-to-back World Series titles. This quest for a repeat starts in spring.
Boston is coming into this season with some key losses to their rotation. Jacoby Ellsbury, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Franklin Morales, Stephen Drew, Andrew Bailey and Ryan Dempster are off the team, but to the same respect, they have made some key additions as well. Edward Mujica, Burke Badenhop, A.J. Pierzynski, Grady Sizemore, Jonathan Herrera and Chris Capuano look to help make the Red Sox better than a season ago.
Here are some of the best tweets about the Red Sox during spring training.
