Verdugo -- 'I'm just starting to feel like myself again. In the box I'm not thinking anymore.'

'It's really just do our best to get on time and let your swing eat.' #RedSox

Mookie is still one of my favorite Red Sox ever but it’s really fun having Verdugo on the team even if he’s not hitting the cover off the ball at all times. He brings that Tatis/Javy Baez/Juan Soto combination of swagger and goofiness that I feel like the Sox haven’t had for a while.

Good question from Harold (?!) about his holding his hands so low and were people questioning all of his journey up to the big leagues how he's going to get to high fastballs. OK, how does he get on top of high heat, starting with his hands down around his waste? He said he told people "we'll see" and didn't change anything. Everybody loved that answer.

Then, Harold had to go and ask about all the tattoos, which cover all of his chest and both arms except for the other side of the bicep on his right arm. What is that muscle called? He said he planned to get a tattoo for that area too. He may be a Kook, but he's our Kook.
