"Maybe the Red Sox think drinking and driving is no big deal. Thank God he didn't do anything truly reckless, like smoking a little pot and then eating a hot pocket." - futurefenwaystars on D. Britton DUI
Disconcerting to hear Cechinni is not driving the ball but not surprising. Still young in the season, and he seems to have the savvy and approach to get a tad more loft in his swing. Only saw him in st and could not discern whether he had a quick swing. He certainly was good at topping the ball, only a small sample though.

Chris Mellen ?Chris Mellen 11m First-division player. RT @greenmonstersox: realistic ceiling for (Rafael) devers? . . . . Scouting the boxes: Both Mercedes and Cuevas continue extremes, either extremely good or bad. Today Cuevas the good, Mercedes the bad & Buttrey the ugly.
Looking at Aro's profile and the game logs is interesting. Profile says throws strikes yet he has a lot of BB/IP. On the other hand he's not giving up many hits. He's older but if he does actually throw strikes, could be a bullpen piece down the road.
Asuaje continues to roll. Weems had a triple. I only point that out because I think there's a lot more potential there than is showing so far. . . From watching: Today Ramos struggled with breaking balls and he got a lot of them which is something I hadn't noticed before (although it might just be SSS or something I hadn't noticed). If the pitchers are in fact changing their approach and given his M.O. of being raw, this could be a time for a huge step forward for Henry, or not. I'll try to pay attention to what they are throwing him and how he reacts.

Even MiLB is calling it Jeter-like so I'm not going to post the idiotic tweet but, here's the play: . . After further review, not so idiotic: . MiLB.com [email protected] 59m MUST-SEE MiLB.TV: #RedSox No. 13 prospect @dmarrero17 shows great range, makes Jeter-like throw for @portlandseadogs. atmilb.com/1lSBxYa . . . . Red Sox Stats [email protected] 45m Pierzynski + Ross: .227/.273/.356 At what point do you at least try to let Vazquez dominate the game in a defensive facet? . . . It should be noted that Marrero is only seven months younger than Iglesias and is already a far better hitter than Jose although I can't really say that he's mastered the swinging bunt.
