From the Boston Globe’s Sox notebook this morning:
The Sox have agreed to terms with Wilson and two other picks, director of amateur scouting Jason McLeod said: fifth-round choice Seth Schwindenhammer, a high school outfielder from Illinois, and eighth-round pick William Wilkerson, an outfielder from Augusta State. The players need to pass physicals and drug tests before the deals become official.
From reader Mooseinohio, who sent me the link:
The Red Sox are oft mentioned as potential trade partners with the Rangers to get Jarrod Saltalamacchia . . . Wouldn’t it be cool to someday have both him and Schwindenhammer on the same team? Would the folks who put the names the uniforms negotiate a ‘per letter’ contract to get more money? What team has been fielded with the most letters or syllable in their names? The least? How badly would Harry Caray butcher their names?
I’m not sure that Harry would have even been able to handle “Seth” or “Jarrod” without adding extra syllables, God live him.
