    Did he have a game last night? My son came crashing into the kitchen all excited that "they" said Aruba on the baseball game he was watching I thought I heard steel drums too, but just figured I was hearing things!

    Yes, Xander even got another home run last night! I feel for him as the Red Sox are doing so poorly and the media is dragging them down but somehow Xander continues to stay positive. Seems like all the youngsters on our team this year are the only ones producing. Example: HOlts, Mookie and Bogaerts. They actually mention Aruba quite a bit and I always get excited as well

    Isn't it cool that the mere mention of Aruba excites so many of us? I hear those drums on occasion too Jacki! So glad Xander is doing his best to help the Sox!

    I'm an Orioles fan so naturally I don't like Boston, but every time they are playing the Sox I have to point out to anyone who will listen that Xander is from Aruba. When he's batting or makes a play I have to listen close for mentions of Aruba.
    A long time ago we (Orioles) had an Aruban player too, Sydney Ponson. I always look for him on the island, even though I have no clue what he is doing or where he is these days.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    FYI - tomorrow on NESN 7:30 pm there is going to be a episode about the brotherly bond between Xander and his brother. Anyone who gets NESN should watch. I am guessing it will also be found on redsox.com after it is aired as well.
