    Wow, comparing a white guys athletic skills to 2 black guys? Someone better tell Damon that you don’t do that.

      Wonder if Heathcott has D-1 point guard potential as Henry & AJAX did/do

    • DreDog

      He needs to go the Red Sox school of scouting.

      Why not? Brett Gardner runs as fast as any black ballplayer in the majors.

      • Bo

        You rarely hear the same comparisons the other way. Never hear the black guy whos a grinder. Who knows the game. The media always compares them to someone they look like.

  • A.D.

    Due to last year’s circumstances some fans are getting a little bit edgy about Slade Heathcott and JR Murphy.

    100% agree, especially after last year when most people seemed to go with the “don’t worry he’ll sign” with Cole.

      Don’t worry; they’ll sign.
