The Obligatory Christian Vazquez Column

As the 2017 Red Sox roster takes shape (and Blake Swihart is being optioned to Pawtucket to start the season, Christian Vazquez looks like he'll be starting, and that makes Shank happy.
FORT MYERS, Fla — Get it over with, Red Sox.

Make Christian Vazquez your everyday catcher.

Roll back the clock to where you were two years ago before Vazquez came up with a bum elbow at spring training.

Vazquez is the best catcher on the team. He’ll hit enough. It’s OK to tell Sandy Leon that you loved what he did for you last year. But why waste time when Vazquez is going to end up being the everyday catcher anyway?

UPDATE, 3/27 AT 8:55 PM - Fixed incorrect first name in the title - whoops...
