@ alexspeier (about Red Sox top prospect 19-year old OF Ryan Westmoreland): Sox prospect and cancer survivor Rizzo: 'I knew what to expect. With him, no one knows any details on how he’s going to come out.' BUT Initial indications from a team source, according to, are that surgery went well, but it will be a few days before a full prognosis. More of Rizzo's comments on Westmoreland – whom he considers a good friend – are here: #redsox & #redsox say Ryan Westmoreland surgery 'successful,' but that he faces 'difficult period' prior to recovery:

@ GaryArmidaFCP: Love that the Nats released Elijah Dukes. Don't know the whole story yet, but times are changing in DC with Mike Rizzo. #nationals #MLB  & Working on a #redsox article for tomorrow and it struck me how underrated JD Drew is as a hitter. #MLB I mean, really, is it b/c of the draft holdout and Bizzinger's book that JD Drew isn't looked at as an elite hitter? @rudyjuly2 True, but lifetime .283/.392/.504 is outstanding. 7 seasons of .390+ OBP. Not a star, but damn close. Injuries kill his case.
