    Moore looked impressive.  I hope our bats wake up by April, as few to none in our SR look near overwhelming.

    We will NEED the bats to pop!!!

    3 up 3 down.   Looks like the hard work in the off season is paying off for Lackey.  He is looking better and better.  I like to see it!

    Sox bats showing some life!  Hazel May doesn't hit like a girl.  Dude doesn't look like a lady?

    Glad to see her back in Boston :)

    David Ortiz has been shut down for 5-7 days after an MRI revealed inflammation where the bone and tendon join together in both of his heels-(non-Achilles inflammation in both heels).

    Ortiz apparently has more issues with left heel. But both have pain.

    Looked like a good all-around effort.  We need a little more from our offense, but the SP are far more important at this point.

    All in all.  I couldn't be more pleased with Lackey's progression.  He may end up being worth NOT dumping him for a bucket of balls!  :)  So, we don't have to give him away + subsidise the move at some $10+ mil / yr., and we get a decent #5 to boot.  Good move by Ben C. in not letting the public pressure to move Lackey.  The public pressure I was advocating for.

    What if Lackey becomes a viable #3???  Does he actually start earning his keep?  I'm not holding my breath, but it would make me extatic to see the improbable actually happen.  Here's to the comeback of the year player in the making????  :)

    You gotta love that he had the character to come to camp in great shape, with a renewed team first attitude!
