Making The Rounds

Shank follows his usual spring training pattern and profiles various Red Sox players, starting with Christian Vasquez this year.

Also noted is Shank's focus on Red Sox payroll:
The $200 million Red Sox have a lot of thunder in their new lineup.
The affable 24-year-old backstop doesn’t make a lot of noise in the millionaire’s club that is the Sox clubhouse.
Much like Shank with the Patriots (referring to nearly all opponents as 'tomato cans' so he has the chance to crap on them if they lose), he will constantly be referring to this payroll number in future columns in order to inflate their level of expectations so he can criticize them if they fail to meet those expectations.
