A little surprised to see Aceves on this list.

Aceves is most likely going to be a middle reliever. In some peoples opinion Mitchell Boggs might have been the best middle reliever in baseball last year, he just avoided arbitration and signed for 1.475. Ace did alright.

Breslow got 2 years / $6.9m.

Yale alumni magazine aside: Breslow / Lavarnaway was the first battery pairing of Yale alumni for the Sox in a long time, maybe ever.

The only other Yale alumni who ever played for the Sox players were Joe Wood (1944) and Frank Quinn (1949-50).

Thanks, btw, I caught your post on SOSH about CHB's Francona story not being behind the Globe's paywall yet and jumped over. Interesting background. I'll be watching for the postie this week.

Breslow/Lavarnway thing discussed in August 1st thread, page 1.

I do worry that I'm sometimes repeating myself.

No review copy this time, sadly, but I hope my local store has it ready to be bought on Tuesday. I'm anxious to read it.
