cocky punk?? look, i’m 40 so i’ll take any insinuation that i’m young! frankie came to a redsox bullpen that had more holes than a practice putting green. the guy has legit stuff… it’s just what’s between the ears that has a problem. he did well for us… no double balks! 😉 the Sox has a history of “breaking” arms but we are good, very good, with developing the mental edge of a professional player. that happens when you actually… Read more »

More Hot Stove: “Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd confirmed to Troy Renck of the Denver Post that prospect Russell Wilson will pursue football full-time instead of reporting to Spring Training with the Rockies.”
