Linsanity comes to the Red Sox?

No, not Jeremy Lin.  Che-Hsuan Lin.

OK, it might be a little too early to start calling him Linsanity.  He hit only .235 for AAA Pawtucket last year.  However, he hit 2 for 3 in the Sox game against Northeastern on Saturday.  And, he scored a run today against the Minnesota Twins.

The fact that he is appearing repeatedly in spring training games suggest the Sox are giving him a serious look -- and already Valentine is calling him "a very interesting player."  That sounds about right to me.  It's no secret that he's an impressive outfielder with a cannon for an arm.  In 2010 he was named the Red Sox Minor League Defensive Player of the Year.  Now if he can show that he can hit as well, he may just get a chance to play the outfield in Fenway Park.
