Afternoon Report from Ft. Myers (Day 2)
Due to the rain this morning, the Red Sox Double-A and Triple-A players played an intra-squad game on the back fields at JetBlue Park at Fenway South. Pretty cool to see Christian Vazquez batting with Dan Butler catching. Rich Hill pitched the final inning, but the game came to a halt due to the rain.

Boston left for Sarasota at 8:30 AM and there game with Baltimore is slated to start after 2 PM. The starters that stayed behind, took batting practice on the Major League field early this morning.
Jet Blue Park literally has tours all day. I bumped into a few people from New England, including a couple that frequently vacations in Bar Harbor
- Craig Breslow made his spring debut in the Single-A game against Baltimore minor leaguers: IP, H, 0 BB, K, 18 pitches/11 strikes
- Former Sea Dogs I saw in camp: Bryce Brentz, Butler, Garin Cecchini, Keith Couch, Jeremy Kehrt, J.C. Linares, Heiker Meneses, Henry Owens,Pete Ruiz, Vazquez and many more.
- Aaron Kurcz is doing well after missing all of last season with Tommy John Surgery.
- Michael Olmsted pitched with Portland in 2012. He was in Milwaukee’s system last year, but released this Spring Training, and signed back with Boston. Nice catching up with Mike.
- Kevin Boles, Bob Kipper, Dave Joppie and current Sea Dogs Manager Billy McMillon were in the dugouts for today’s game.
