Dylan Axelrod is one of the good guys you just have to cheer for. He doesn't have great stuff, but he battles every pitch. He never complains.

Away from the field he's a mentor for United Cerebral Palsy.

I hope he keeps getting chances, and I hope he keeps making a little something out of them.

I recall that the Red Sox were holding out for Brett Jackson in return for Theo Epstein. One empty uniform for one empty suit.
