PAWTUCKET -- On a late March day in Fort Myers, Fla., Xander Bogaerts could have accepted what the lineup card stipulated and left it at that.
The Red Sox prospect and now the newest member of the PawSox, however, was comfortable enough in his own skin to approach the powers-that-be and show his eagerness and enthusiasm for the game he is paid to play.
According to one staff member, the sequence helped cast the player in a whole new light.
PAWTUCKETâ€”â€śDisappointedâ€ť is the way that Mayor Donald Grebien said he felt after getting the news that Pawtucket stands to receive about $876,000 less under the House Finance Committee's budget plan than what it would have under the governor's original proposal.
