Curious to see how the power translates at Fenway. Seeing a lot of high fly balls to what would be the deepest parts in Boston.
https://www.bostonherald.com/2021/06/03/mastrodonato-red-sox-offensive-struggles-are-making-the-case-for-jarren-duran/In USA’s 7-1 win over Nicaragua in their opening game on Monday, Duran went 3-for-6 while gunning down a runner trying to stretch a double into a triple.
Afterwards, MLB veteran Todd Frazier told The Athletic, “He’s gonna be a stud. I said (Mike Trout) is going to be something, and I’m thinking the same thing about Duran.”

He just had a great tournament down there in Florida,” Cora said on a pregame video conference Monday before Boston’s contest against the Miami Marlins. “There’s a guy that is going to impact this team in the future. The future doesn’t mean tomorrow, or in a month. It might be next year, or in two years. But we know he’s a good player. The way he impacts the game offensively, running the bases, is eye-opening.
“We know that he’s a good player. We know that he still has some things he has to get better. But we keep talking about him and we’re very happy where he’s at right now,” Cora said. “Now, he has to go back and play and keep getting better. But obviously, like Chaim (Bloom) said in spring training, I think it’s something we’ll keep paying attention to him and we’ll see what happens in the future.”
I read this somewhat as manager-speak for “We’re winning and I’m not about to worry any of my guys that some kid is coming for their job.”Unless something drastically changes, going to be a bit for Jarren
I guess Candlepin bowling was invented in Worcester but I don't get the reference? I'm not into candlepin bowling. It's also a reflex to go with chester. I'll be doing it a lot. I did it last time, but I had to hit backspace.
