And I'm dead serious about giving Bogaerts a promotion soon. His confidence is through the roof. All the promotion did was inspire more of it- he now has more homers through 27 AAA games as he had in 57 AA games. By god, do we have something special on our hands. He put one out tonight.

EDIT: Further evidence of him perhaps surpassing WMB already:

Exhibit A: Quote by Cherington: “You know, I’ve always kind of felt like there’s no such thing as a prospect in Triple-A,’’ Cherington said. “Once you get to Triple-A, you’re either ready to help the big-league team or you’re not. And us, we’re finding out about the guys at Triple-A now, who’s ready and who isn’t.

Exhibit B: Last ten games:

Bogaerts - .333/.436/.515, 4/6 K/BB
WMB - .244/.279/.561 8/2 K/BB

Exhibit C: Bogaerts, age 20: .297/.393/.487, 70/49 K/BB, 370 POR/PAW PAs
WMB, age 20: .265/.349/.404, 123/48 K/BB, 427 GRE PAs
