Still nothing to write home about yet. Arnie Beyeler, who’s been managing the PawSox, is our new first base coach. Greg Colbrunn, formerly of the Evil Empire, is our new hitting coach. Victor Rodriguez, our former minor league coordinator, is our new assistant hitting coach.
As far as players are concerned, we’ve non-tendered Ryan Sweeney, Rich Hill, and Scott Atchison. We traded Zach Stewart, who we got from the Other Sox for Kevin Youkilis, to the Pirates for a player to be named later. Last but not least, although we claim that we’re still working on resigning Cody Ross, we worked out a two-year deal worth ten million dollars for Johnny Gomes pending a physical.
In other news, the Pats beat the Colts, 59-24, and the Jets, 49-19.
