Anderson pitched 2 perfect innings for AAA Omaha on Thursday. 3 ground outs, 3 fly outs.

Im not sure. But he's only had one inning in which he was scored upon in his professional career.

Its going to be amazing to see him in the MLB

I am a bit curious as Scotty Pods said that BA had wanted to switch for a few seasons if he wasn't going to get a chance at CF. It sounds kinda crazy that the Sox wouldn't have given him a look.

Ozzie wouldn't know talent if it sat of his face and farted.

That's interesting, actually. I wonder why this wasn't done sooner, if he brought it up to management.

Let me get this straight. If your reserve outfielder thinks he wants to convert to being a pitcher, it's the responsibility of the major league manager to recognize that it's the right move, and take care of it? How much deeper can your insane Ozzie hatred go?

I suspect because he was a first round pick who Kenny had a lot invested in by trading a popular center fielder from a world series winning team to clear room for him and also as late as 2008 Kenny was saying Anderson would hit .275 with 25 HRs. The Sox had a lot invested him as an everyday player and to try and turn him into a pitcher would be seen as a big failure on the part of the Sox and I suspect that Kenny and management didn't want to do that.

I think, I hope, that teal was heavily implied in that post.

In fairness, is it easy to discern what is actually sitting on your face, especially under the distraction of a fart?

Thanks for that link. Very interesting. I knew he was throwing a big league fastball, but a big league slider, too?

GONNA BE HUGE!!!
