Venezuela Winter League box scores haven’t been posted yet. I’ll try to get an update posted later today (assuming the box scores get posted at some point), but no promises.

VWL Update: (thanks to commentor Yanks26 for the heads up)
Justin Pope: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 0-3 GB/FB
Marcos Vechionacci: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 2 BB – both walks were intentional…fear the Vech (.455-.618-.818 in his homeland)
Edwar Gonzalez: 0 for 4, 1 K

If you’re bored at work, take a quick scroll through the rosters for some of the VWL teams, some of those names are big time blasts from the pasts.

Did you see that?!?

Dustin Pedroia just tried to slap the ball out of Victor Martinez’s hand as he went by on the first play of the game. I kid you not, rewind it on your DVR and check that shit out. It’s a good play though, because he’s a “gamer” and “gritty” and a “Red Sox” and “not A-Rod.”

And for those of you who witnessed Kevin Youkilis reading the lineup, tell me he doesn’t look and sound like someone you’d meet online at 3am.
