Sox vs. Dodgers in Tomorrow’s Cactus League Opener

Shirts vs. Skins
Yesterday’s intrasquad game was rained out, but it was a go today as the Sox Shirts and Sox Skins faced each other a day before Cactus League play begins. Highlights of the day: Micah Johnson went 3-4 with two stolen bases and three runs scored, Conor Gillaspie connected for two triples, Tim Anderson went 2-3 with two RBI and Trayce Thompson homered.
Jeff Samardzija was on the mound for today’s intrasquad contest and he’s feeling good.

The New John Danks
Micah Johnson used Yoga to help his development this past offseason.
Who knows if Adam LaRoche‘s son Drake will be the third generation LaRoche to reach the big leagues, following in the footsteps of his grandad Dave, a 14-year major-league pitcher, dad Adam and uncle Andy, who is also in Sox camp this spring. But if Drake does reach the bigs, he very well may look back at this conversation with Jim Thome at Sox camp as being one of the reasons why he made it.
