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. I have discovered that fantasy baseball is my preferred game. It is right in my wheelhouse, like a hanging curveball.  I am a self-professed nerd--an engineer that loves numbers, data, and math.  Baseball is full of stats...

Player Reports: Allen Webster, Mookie Betts, Garin Cecchini

I made the trek out to Pawtucket on June 9 to watch Allen Webster and the PawSox take on the rehabbing Mat Latos and the Louisville Bats, which fortunately coincided with Dollar Menu Monday at McCoy Stadium, where $15 got me a seat two rows behind home plate, a couple of dogs, and a soda.  Though I had watched video and read extensively about these minor league players, Monday represented...

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. The third baseman wasn’t expected to play in the series finale at Fenway Park, but that didn’t stop him from arriving at the stadium at 7 a.m. this morning. Cecchini’s extra preparation certainly paid off, though, as a Dustin Pedroia ejection...

Dustin Pedroia Ejected From Red Sox-Rays Game; Garin Cecchini Debuts

Sox Prospect Garin Cecchini Joins Sox Sunday

(Cliff Welch/ might be for just one day, but third-base prospect Garin Cecchini will join the Red Sox on Sunday—replacing reliever Alex Wilson on the roster. More than likely, Cecchini will be sent back down to AAA once Stephen Drew is activated on Monday. Cecchini is hitting .278 so for this season at Pawtucket. Daniel Nava was also optioned to AAA.

Sox Prospects Moving Around The Diamond?

Garin Cecchini—(David Manning-USA TODAY Sports)Everyone who follows the Red Sox knows there is a potential infield logjam coming down the road. Garin Cecchini (3B), Mookie Betts (2B), Deven Marrero (SS), Xander Bogaerts (SS/3B) and Will Middlebrooks (3B/1B) are either already at or not that far away from The Show. But even the average Yankee fan could figure out that those are...

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. I could hear in the back of my mind a relative saying decades ago, "Now I know he's Italian,...
