    Stephen Drew has a mild concussion and maybe out 1-2 days. He was scratched today after experiencing some concussion symptoms from being hit in the helmet by a pitch yesterday.

    NPR did a long piece yesterday on Mike Piazza and his book.  He mentioned the concussion from Roger Clemens, which he said was intentional, and I believe him.

    I know he just flew out to right but Iglesias looks much better at the plate.  He looks comfortable taking a few pitches, and he's obviously put on some muscle.

    Ive been also very impressed with Christian Vasquez behind the plate. Defensively, IMO, he looks better than lavarnway.

     Lava is not our future catcher.... future DH? sure. future 1Bman? maybe. idk why we are wasting our time... but then again, it's not like it takes a long time to learn how to man first base.

    I agree, and from what I have heard and read, I don't think any scout would disagree with you either......speak of the devil nice double.

    I think Lavas bat will have to carry him, his defense is weak so he will likely be a C/1B/DH  kinda guy.  Im much less confident today he is with the sox long term,  but if starts mashing it this year that could change.

     

    But I really like Vasquez.  I would le to see a platoon of him and Swihart in a few years.

    Dumpster was pounded.




    Wow!  Great baseball analysis!  Pounded???

    YOU are a JOKE!  Your teenybopper analysis is lacking at best!

    Actually, Dempster showed good stuff, but it did start getting away from him.....

    YOU are a JOKE!  & clearly not a RED SOX fan!

    All you do is seek to pad your wanting credentials????  YOU spend 24/7 trying desperately, like a teenage girl, to validate your "predictions," about each player, thus your pathetic short sighted "analysis" about said player.

    Weak!

    Desperate!  Like a 13 yr. old girl, who has been dumped by the BMOC... 

    Little girls with very little to say of substance.......

    STIFFY!

    STIFF:   "  I will say anything about a Red Sox player to prove the point that I am right about said player being a shhhhmuck.  I don't care about the RED SOX, only becoming said, BMOC."

    I have ZERO clue that I will NEVER be considered the BMOC by anybody with half a brain!  I honestly am the biggest narcissist on the earth, and think if I say things often enough, folks will finally believe my horse______.  OK....  I'm pathetic, but my delusions are all I really have.

    Why waste your time with him. He's not worth the time or effort.

    Christian Vazquez said his best pop time ever is 1.79 seconds. It was 1.82 on his caught-stealing last night.

    Christian Vazquez has worked with Yadier and Jose Molina during his offseasons. Does he have a better arm than both? "I think so."

    All three other major sports would've suspended him for that.
