Fluto Shinzawa offers some notes, via Extra Bases. Some key points:

  • Ells and Drewlicious are out on the field, testing their injuries.
  • Tito seems both optimistic and pessimistic about Papi's knee. Says he's at the age where he'll just feel it all the time, but that doesn't mean he can't be effective. Just has to work harder/smarter.
  • People like Brandon Moss. Tito alludes to his ability to play 3 maybe 4 positions. (Definitely LF and RF. CF maybe, 1B maybe) Seems like a good enough audition might lead Sean Casey on the street sooner rather than later. (Ed: This is me speculating a bit. It might not be the case, but they certainly seem enamored/impressed by him thusfar, and he certainly would provide more options on the bench than Casey does).
  • Paps' pickoff move is awesome.

All right. I'm out. Enjoy the game everybody.
