Finally had a chance to head up to my first Portland Sea Dogs Yard Sale over the weekend, and while it wasn’t as epic as the PawSox one, there were still some great deals to be had! The Sea Dogs do this event every year when their ticket sales open, and on top of all the other festivities going on at the park that day, the yard Sale always seems to draw a crowd.

There really is nothing like March in Ft Myers, Florida. My yearly trek to Spring Training is always one of the highlights of the year for Sox Signatures, and this year did not disappoint.

The dynamic between Don and Jerry is what I grew up with as a Sox fan, and while I have nothing against Dave O’Brien, he has some pretty big shoes to fill. As for the game itself, Henry Owens diminated the Orioles giving up only 3 hits in 7 2/3 innings, and Blake Swihart hit a solo HR to lead the Sox to the 2-0 victory. But the real story was after the game ended.
