Red Sox Restructure Medical Staff

2

The Red Sox restructure their medical and training staff, including the addition of several new strength and conditioning personnel and the elimination of the team's Head Beer-and-Chickenologist. "In retrospect, it kinda makes sense," said an unnamed and entirely fictional team source. General Manager Ben Cherington indicated that the changes were undertaken in an effort to "provide the best possible care for the players moving forward," presumably shifting the medical staff's focus away from warding off villagers with torches and pitchforks and genetically engineering a monkey with four asses.

Brian Cashman Obviously Just Trying to Get Fired Now

I mean, he's right and I appreciate him owning up to it. I'm just not sure that Hank Steinbrenner or Randy Levine will have the same open-mindedness or the appreciation of Cashman's speaking truth to power them. On the bright side, I think Anaheim might have a GM position open before too long.

Red Sox Top Prospects

John Sickels' excellent annual review of the Sox farmhands. John rates Anthony Ranaudo, Drake Britton and Jose Iglesias as the the top of the system, in that order. The 2010 Draft features heavily in the rankings, including Ranaudo, Garin Cecchini (6), Brandon Workman (8), Kolbrin Vitek (10), Sean Coyle (19), and Henry Ramos (20). Other interesting snippets include: Ryan Lavarnway (9): "defense not great but not awful if he hits enough;" Oscar Tejada (7): "I think the breakout is real;" Chris Balcom-Miller(11): "One of the best-kept secrets in the minor leagues and my pick for a big breakout in '11." Top-flight big league club, promising farm. God, I love this team!

Awesome O'Clock Apparently Not Left-Handed

"John Lackey sucks" is the "what." Brian MacPherson at the ProJo's baseball blog explores the potential "why." Hint: It doesn't have anything to do with the defense behind him, contrary to Big John's implicit assertions... I'd love to pretend I noticed it first, but it's courtesy of Halos Heaven - wherein they still hate the stupid Red Sox with their fancy baseball-playing competence and their make-out parties.

Red Sox sign (the Other) Kendrick Perkins

1

Per WEEI, the Sox have signed their sixth-round pick from the 2010 draft, the other Kendrick Perkins (or OPK). His bonus figure was not available, but is expected to be over slot. Signed away from football at Texas A&M, Sox officials describe Perkins thusly: "He has a unique power-speed combo. There’s a lot to like. He’s not raw by any means," Hopefully, he'll rise above his namesake and thereby avoid his destiny of having an opponent in the World Series deceitfully and cowardly injure him on purpose because they're incapable of beating him.

The Red Sox Little Papi

Happy Birthday, Dylan Pedroia! Baby, Mother, and Father and Reigning MVP are all apparently healthy and doing well. Pedroia the Elder will miss the Blue Jays series (allowing us to bat Nick Green and Alex Gonzalez), and will return for our date with the MFY in Fenway, where hopefully he'll go 7-15... Congratulations to the Pedroia Family!
