4:50 PM — I spoke to Patriots director of player personnel and pitching coach Brett Jodie for about 25 minutes in the coaches office today, breaking down every pitcher on the staff.  He talked about what they’re working on, what they’ve done well, what they need to improve on and a lot more.  Stay tuned for a post on each pitcher coming up soon.

3:10 PM — If you like empty fields and an empty clubhouse, well today’s your lucky day.  Nothing going on here as of yet…stay tuned to this thread for any necessary updates.

    How’s the Tim Raines Jr., second baseman experiment working out?

    So far, not bad. It isn’t ideal…but they’re making do with what they have. He’s better suited as an outfielder, though…without question.

    I do like Lydon and Raines together at the top of the lineup!
