The Kids Are All Right

Even though it was only a Spring Training match-up, the prospect of facing the Empire's front line with AA and AAA kids was unappealing. Nevertheless, Iglesias (from here to forever to be known as "Iggy"), Tejada and Linares were the names that beat the Evil Ones last night 5-3.

Jose Iglesias made two outstanding plays at short (one a nifty step-back double play that flummoxed A-Fraud on the base paths), showing the Nation that his slick glove will not be absent from Fenway for very long. Moreover, Iggy seemed to be on base all night.

Ditto for Tejada and Linares—who each went 2-2. So, the Pinstriped Posers lost at home and all is right with the world.
