1. Red Sox:

* The David Ortiz retirement scam goes up there with the Frank Abagnale from Catch Me if You Can – the PR campaign to start the $25mm discussion next year is absolutely brilliant. The media is falling over them selfs to convince Red Sox nation this is a good thing. Pathetic!

* Amazing he has progressed so fast but Bogaerts will win a battle title in the next two years

* Christian Vazquez in 20 games – stolen bases against 5 caught 4
