Thanks Shooty. Do you have the link to the Cub mascot story too?

And I'm so excited about Bogaerts it is disturbing. I am fully buying the hype.

Wait, Bogaerts is the new Cubs mascot? What do the Sox get in return?

Is Raul Adalberto Mondesi going to be billed using all three names? If so, awesome.

Nah they'll cut it to something boring like "Mondy" or "Ra-Mon".

Hmm Ra-Mon sounds a lot like ramen, so i propose we call him Noodles.

He could have been, but the Cubs released him.

So what's the Sox's plan when Will Middlebrooks has a .265/.290/.400 line in June?

Trade?

Cecchini?

Holt?

Bogaerts with Herrera playing short?

Drew who might still be re-signed?

And I take your point but if WMB is hitting .265 his OBP/SLG is going to be better than .290/.400.

You can't trust a guy with no face.

Also the link goes to Cubs mascot article.

Nooooo Brock Holt \o/
