I noticed Hickey has remained on the team to help with the pitchers. Any word on Hoyt? Is he assisting in he minors?

Hickey throws left handed batting practice, mostly to Valentin, to get him used to batting lefty vs. lefties.

Baby steps. Hoyt was involved in ST, and he will continue to help the team.

Isn't Hickey thisclose (as Kup would write) to qualifying for his MLB pension? Keeping him around could be crucial to him financially.

It's great having all the former Sox around. JR seems to have belatedly figured out that continuity and pride are related. Maybe he learned the hard way, thanks to Jerry Krause.
