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?

A Theo Epstein look-alike in a Gorilla suit.

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/
