    I really hope so he deserves it he works very hard at everything. People tend to forget how young he is and has to go thru his growing pains, he is very mature for his age which is a huge plus.

    I hope he is getting some needed rest to help him get back on his game. He is a good player with no baggage. In the big leagues it may take a few years for a player to get comfortable and have consistent numbers. Switching him back and forth from short to third and back again is not going to make him comfortable and build his confidence level.

    First official game of spring training - Red Sox vs. NY Mets. Who was our hero? XANDER BOGAERTS.....what a great start to 2015. 3 run homer, a single and 4 RBI's. Aruba's Xander is off to a great start. Hopefully all that hard work in Arizona off season will pay off for Xander.

    Do any of you know if there is another Arubian player in the minors or maybe college here in the US? When we were leaving last week there was a young man being escorted to the front of the security lines that had the look and style of a baseball player. He had a Mizuno bag with matching shoes and baseball style work out pants. I have googled and couldn't come up with anything. I was being nosey and it seemed like he was getting escorted because he was someone important.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Searching baseball websites, I find no other Arubans in MLB or the minor leagues. Can't speak to college players. Perhaps he was in the international league or a criminal they wanted to get off the island.

    You know I cannot hold my excitement when Xander does so well. Last night against Phillies our Aruba star made it to base 5 times! The best one was his triple with bases loaded. Xander is looking a lot better at shortstop as well looks like all his work during off season is going to pay off for him and us Red Sox fans.
