    last night not so good for red sox or xander bogaert........

    from USA TODAY
    NOTES:
    SS Xander Bogaerts (20 years, 323 days) became the youngest position player to appear in a game for Boston since Dwight Evans (20, 318) in 1972. He went 0 for 3 and stranded five runners.

    ...but he made a great play in the field. Let's not expect too much too soon.

    Great article, thanks Andrea for the link! NESN interviewed him and he was so cute saying he did so bad during BP and that he tried different bats, he then went on to give his new bat credit! So young and so excited great to see a player who is just happy to be part of MLB and appreciates the chance to play. Hope it continues :-)

    going to move this to off topic , although aruba related, not aruba tourism related.

    and re: xander, is it true that he never played organized ball as a kid and young teen?
    we had a huge conversation the other evening and one of our neighbors (a sox fan an bosox club member) said that Xander never played b'ball til he was about 16....that his "sport" was soccer.
