Watching Derek Jeter make 40 defensive plays and then watching Adam Everett make 40 defensive plays at the same position is sort of like watching video of Barbara Bush dancing at the White House, and then watching Demi Moore dancing in Striptease. (Bill James)
Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power. If he can continue to hit .260 or so, he'll be useful, and he probably has a future as a backup infielder. (Keith Law)
The Red Sox are interested in a couple of Dominican pitchers that aren't on my big board, 16 yrs RHP Huascar Polanco with a 89-91 fastball and 17 yrs LHP Luis Rodriguez with a fastball around 90 a good curveball and a slider.
Dominican outfielder Franmil Reyes won't turn 16 yrs until July 7th, SS Ronniel Demorizi until July 19th, SS Adalberto Mondesi July 27th, RHP Manuel Gonzalez in Agust first and Venezuelan outfielder Carlos Tocci also in August, non of the can sign until they are 16 yrs. The early phase of International player signing ends in August 31 expect the signings to slow down for the next few days.
