Heading out soon
Just a quick post to let everyone know I’ll be heading to the Red Sox Minor League complex this morning. At 10:30 AM, Jon Lester is scheduled to pitch in one of the intra-squad games. I heard some rumblings yesterday that there will be three intra-squad games going on.
The Red Sox are in Sarasota this afternoon to take on the Orioles. Nate Spears is starting at second base, and is approaching 60 at-bats this spring with Boston. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him get called up at some point during the season. He’s playing everything this spring, and it makes you think he’d be the first player called up in a pinch. He deserves it, what a great guy, who had a tremendous year in Portland last season.
What a thrill it was for me last night to sit in-between Jon Rish and Joe Castiglione for a few innings. Joe gave myself and the Sea Dogs a nice plug on the air.
I’ll have more information later, and hopefully some audio from Lester.
