I saw him pitch an inning for the Sea Dogs on Monday. He faced 3 batters and struck them all out. I remember remarking at the time that that was the first display of competence by the Sea Dogs all night, though perhaps that was unfair to the other players (but not very unfair).

he gives a really great recruiting pitch for fsu in the interview.

Sox sign Royce Clayton to a minor league contract and assign him to Pawtucket, according to NESN.

That's hilarious because that's who Rally predicted was the next in line of Cabrera/Renteria/Gonzalez/Lugo (ie seemingly each next SS gets worse).

Hagadone with another nice performance today: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 BB, 4 K. Since his disastrous first start:

Hagadone throwing a pitch for a strike (video)

Oscar Tejeda triple (video)

Hagadone looked very impressive; in control the entire time. He has excellent command of his fastball, and even surprised me with the ease which he could seemingly gas it into the mid-90's. His arm speed on his changeup improved over the course of the game, and he really started fooling batters with his off-speed and breaking pitches.

Oscar Tejeda looked fantastic all-around. He made a very nice play in the field on a groundball to his left and displayed an excellent arm. At the plate, he looked excellent for a 17-year old. His first two hits were two the opposite field, and he laced the triple featured in the video. He got a little antsy in his 4th AB when he needed a HR for a cycle, and he swung at some bad breaking balls. But all things considered, a very impressive showing.
