The Red Sox officially introduced Shane Victorino on Thursday but have yet to introduce first baseman/catcher Mike Napoli, who signed a three year deal with the Sox a few days before Victorino.
Napoli was supposed to be introduced last Friday, but that was pushed back to Tuesday, and Tuesday passed with no Napoli introduction.
The hold up has spurred rumors that the slugger may have a nagging injury or did not pass a physical.
Subban playing well
Boston Bruins 2012 first-round draft pick, goalie Malcolm Subban, has allowed 2.17 goals per game in 26 games so far this season for the Belleville Bulls.
A 107-2 win
The Bloomington South High girls basketball team in Indiana rolled to a 107-2 victory over Arlington High of Indiana.
“No it’s not OK but (Bloomington South coach Larry Winters) will have to live with that,” first-year Arlington coach Ebony Jackson told the Indianapolis Star. “If that’s how they want to carry themselves, that’s fine. I’m focused on me and mine and we’ll just keep going.”
Winters told the Star that Arlington was playing an aggressive 2-3 zone and added: “I didn’t tell my girls to stop shooting because that would have been more embarrassing (to Arlington). We were not trying to embarrass them or run up the score.”
Rosario on move again
Sandy Rosario is on the move again. After his second sting with Boston this offseason, he was claimed by the Chicago Cubs yesterday.
Until this offseason, Rosario had never been with any other team since being signed as an amateur free agent my the Marlins in 2004. Miami put him on waivers earlier this offseason and he claimed by the Red Sox Oct. 17.
Then, the Red Sox put him on waivers and he was claimed by the Oakland Athletics on Nov. 28.
Oakland then put him back on waivers and the Red Sox claimed him Monday.
Now, he is off to the Cubs.
