- Simon Castro's(didn't know it was pronounced "Simone") debut (looks like a young Jose Contreras)
- Blake Tekotte's debut in CF and flashing some leather early.
- Nice comeback attempt in the 9th.

I didn't notice any tension between the announcers tonight.
I think you'll see a lot more of the prospects out there as hopefully we will start making some trades.

Another organizational placeholder.
One rookie of the year candidate is Josť Iglesias of the Red Sox. He was their AAA shortstop who in 3 seasons in AAA averaged .244. He was called up to play 3rd base when Middlebrooks got hurt. After 43 games ( decent sampling) he is hitting .410. Now he probably won't hit .310 by season end but sometimes a player will do better at the MLB level. Ironically, Drew then gets hurt so they move Iglesias to SS and call up their AAA 1st baseman who was hitting .267. They throw him on 3rd and in 6 games he is hitting .316. That is why I posted the other day when someone knocked Theo that the Red Sox always seem to get good production on a short term basis from the AAA team.

Tekotte is basically a white Jerry Owens. A two tool player. He can catch it well and he can flat out run. However, he can't hit worth a cent. Probably maxes out as a nice pinch runner or late inning defensive sub.

I am always amazed when Axelrod does not get hammered.
He has no stuff,really. Nothing.

I am watching mainly to see how the young lefties in the rotation,(Quintana,Santiago,Sale,Danks) fare. It is a decent core that should keep the Sox respectable the next 1.5 years,while they try to re-build the roster.
