First, I’m sure a good chunk of our readers are dads, so happy Fathers Day to ya! I’m not a dad, but I have one, and he’s the man. I’ll be hanging with him later today, watching golf and enjoying good booze. I just might even root for Phil Mickelson, even though I suspect that dude’s a phony jerk — all those fist bumps and fake smiles aren’t fooling me, Mickelson! Anyway, my dad likes him, so go Phil. Now I’m tempted to write an entire post about pro golf, but some of you might consider that boring, so I’ll get on with the usual prospect talk instead.Please, blog, may I have some more?

The Run Down
The Red Sox pipeline, as usual, is flush with talent. And although its most exciting prospects (see Middlebrooks & Barnes) are probably a year away from arriving at Fenway, the system features a decent amount of MLB-ready talent. Unfortunately for those ready to make their marks with the big club, Boston’s MLB roster doesn’t seem primed for much turnover: The opening in right field will most certainly be filled with a free agent, and I’m thinking they’ll do the same to round out the rotation.Please, blog, may I have some more?
