Spring Questions: Who will emerge from a crowded cast of candidates as the regular closer now that Jonathan Papelbon is back in the rotation? ... Will Lugo be as slick defensively as the man he replaced considering he only played 81 games at short last year? ... When does the year's first Manny Being Manny episode take place? ... Will the last baseball star left in Japan please turn out the lights on his way to the airport?
Phenom Watch: CF Jacoby Ellsbury could be ready to supplant Coco Crisp by the second half, although more likely that change comes in 2008.
