Bringing Your AAA Game - Mookie Betts & Garin Cecchini

As this is my first post here at We Talk Fantasy Sports, I thought a brief introduction was in order. I have been playing fantasy sports for over 10 years now.

Garin Cecchini On Major League Debut: ‘It Was A Dream Come True’ (Video)

Garin Cecchini was all smiles after making his debut for the Red Sox in Boston’s 4-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday afternoon.

Portland Sea Dogs and new friends

This past Friday (July 5), I drove six hours south to Portland, Maine, on what would be the hottest weekend of the summer (to this point). The car air conditioner helped a great deal, but it took me an hour to figure out how to make the hotel's air conditioner work properly.
