    Oh there's interest.  Can't wait to see what he does with a full season and a late season call up next year.

    He really blossomed a lot this year, making great defensive strides and starting to turn on his power.  

    A defensive minded, switch hitting catcher with a good bat from both sides of the plate......yes please!

    Re: Blake Swihart promoted to AAA

    AHA!  I wondered when that was going to happen.  Swihart was the logical one to be promoted to AAA when Vaz came up but I hadn't heard about it yet.  Now I know why!

    I'm not sure how I feel about having Vaz and Swihart as our catchers next year.  I'd rather have one veteran (like Ross but probably not Ross) to mentor one of them for at least a partial year, and then keep that veteran around in case the bottom fell out on the rookie.  Then during the next year trade the vet at the deadline for prospects and bring up the other one.  

    Any owners who sign previously suspended PED abusers to a big $$ contract are as guilty of perpetuating the PED problem as are the players.

    And I have never posted here under any other names.

    Thanks for the heads up Seannybboi!! As much as people love Vaz now, this guy may well eclipse him one day soon.  Like Jason Varitek only with better defense.

    I don't see Swihart being called up next year anyways well at least not to start. I could see him being a June/Early July call up at the earliest.

    We all have interest in Swihart as I'm sure many clubs across the league do.  I personally feel he will be a better all round player than Vasquez at some point but like them both.

    Not only us Henry Owens making his AAA debut tonight, so is Blake Swihart. Quick climb for the 22-year-old.

    I was lucky enough to talk to him for about twenty minutes during spring training.  This kid is a nice, down to earth young man. Very humble.  He was the first player on the field.  He is a very hard worker in addition to being very talented. I can't wait to see him in Boston.

    i expect 1 of the 2 included in a package this coming off season for a power bat or FOTR starter.....

    We have to sell high on 1 of them.  sounds like swihart should be our keeper.

    Re: Blake Swihart promoted to AAA

    Lets see how he hits, very important. If can hit around .260 I'll be super happy. 27 games, but its a good Cup of Coffee start, for next year. Smart promotion.


    Got his first hit today.
