Shane Victorino in perception vs. reality

As the Boston Red Sox continue to accumulate a plethora of outfielders, one familiar face still believes he is among the top.

Hawaiian outfielder Shane Victorino who missed much of the 2014 season due to injury, still believes he should be seeing substantial playing time.

"I should be the starting right fielder," Victorino who was limited to 30 games last season.

Recently, the Boston Red Sox son Hanley Ramirez who is expected to man left field next season while they already have Mookie Betts and Rusney Castillo who are expected to take up starting jobs in the outfield next season.

Of course Victorino wants to start, but the odds of it appear slim -- in Boston at least. Given his immense success versus left-handed pitching hitting .319 in 373 at-bats off southpaws while clubbing 13 home runs in the past three seasons, he could make an excellent fourth outfielder for Boston next season.
