I love the look of the new ballpark the RSox have. They're talking about a facelift for Hammond Stadium soon and they really should take a page out of what they did at JetBlue. They should configure Hammond to replicate Target Field's dimensions and fence height. Let players get a feel for what they'll be playing in when the season starts. Anyway, I've already got a ticket for a Twins/RSox game over at JetBlue toward the end of ST and I'm really looking forward to seeing it in person!

NESN broadcasters talking about Gardy claiming the Mayors Cup competition is over. They... disagree.

I like the idea of renovating Hammond Stadium to look like Target Field. I'd feel horrible for the Ft. Myers Miracle players, but oh well.

I discovered that too, jamar. Unfortunately CR doesn't have Sprint's 4G service yet and at the regular data rate, the live streaming video is crap. :(

The Mayor's Cup is cool in theory. But it really means absolutely nothing.

I suspect that the ball would carry more in Ft Myers, especially in the summer, than it does in Minnesota so I don't think it would be quite as power-killing. Besides, if the Miracle players expect to play for the Twins, they might as well get used to it. It also could allow Twins talent evaluators to get a sense of how a player's game might eventually translate to TF.

NESN broadcasters were joking that a year ago, they laughed and said that losing the Mayors Cup might be the beginning of the end for Terry Francona... didn't turn out to be so funny when it became true!

I suspect the same is true here but will at least be able to listen to the end of day games on the bus.

Francisco Liriano walks the first batter he faces, Dustin Pedroia. He then got a double play on a liner to Aaron Bates at 1B. He then struck out Cody Ross.

1-2-3 inning for Burton not bad (but not really against MLB competition)
