who doesn't know Jeter gives it his all, and even if Rolen half assedd it he would still be one of the better 3rd baseman in the NL. Plus it doesn't hurt that both of the two teams are leading their respective divisions right now. But cool post cause it was interesting to read how other players regarded them, and what other players thought of effort given. Cool!
Yep he certainly got Varitek and Schilling right.... o and he even wrote a little paragraph about the games I go to every night on the cape which is cool:
"# It's a strong summer in the Cape Cod League for pitching, led by 6-foot-7 North Carolina freshman LHP Andew Miller of Chatham. Not only does he throw 91-96 mph now, but he hasn't begun to fill out. If he is healthy, he could be a top-three pick in '06. Rob Ray, a power reliever from Texas A&M pitching for Wareham, at one point fanned 22 of 24 batters he faced. Three other names of note: Matt Goyen, a left-hander with a good curveball and feel from West Georgia (27th round pick by Tampa Bay), has been lights out for Brewster; ditto Vanderbilt LHP Ryan Mullins (Chatham), Oregon State RHP Dallas Buck (Falmouth), Baylor RHP Mark McCormick (Wareham) and Virginia RHP Matt Avery (Brewster). The Red Sox signed Chatham's and Central Florida's Kyle Bono, an eighth-round pick who hadn't allowed a run and had a 22/2 K/BB ratio in 15 2/3 innings. The Red Sox didn't have a first-round pick and are trying to fill their organization by signing lower picks with higher value: Bono, South Carolina 3B-1B Steve Pearce (10th round), Georgia LHP Mike Rozier (13th) and Harvard infielder Zak Farkas. The latter was a draft-eligible sophomore with two years remaining at Harvard, but grew up a diehard Red Sox fan on Beacon Street a half-mile from Fenway and can sign and report after classes end in May." -peter gammons
