Very nice hr.  looked a little like Hanley doesn't he?  Same big build for a shortstop, easy swing.  I'd like to see him steal more at the top of the lineup.  Man, Boston's got a good looking young player here.

I would agree with you on this. As he fills out he could be very similar to Hanley.

Glad to see a homer from him. He was just hitting singles. Guess he is starting to warm up. 1 hr and 2 rbi and a stolen base to boot. He won't be a top 5 SS this year, but I wouldn't doubt he is top 6-10 in SS. Needs to fill out a little more to get more power. I am just expecting a Machado type season out of him, .290-ish average and 15 homers, and lots of runs if they keep him in the 2 hole.

Why would you think he needs to fill out more to gain more power. He has displayed that he has very good bat speed and is capable of crushing pitches. I think he just needs to develop as a player but I'm not sure he needs to fill out more.

edit, just saw espn has him listed at 185. I'd be surprised if he did not already weigh more than that. 6 ft 3 185 is fairly thin. He looks bigger than that.

John Farrell to contemplate lineup possibilities
The impending return of Shane Victorino from the disabled list will provide John Farrell intriguing lineup options.

Victorino will almost certainly be plugged back into the second hole, but Farrell might place emerging Xander Bogaerts into the leadoff spot rather than move him down. That would result in Dustin Pedroia batting third.
That lineup would give the Red Sox a right-left-right configuration at the top of the order that Farrell covets, according to ESPN.
Bogaerts has earned consideration to take over the leadoff spot with an on-base percentage of .397.

Interesting, & good news for owners. Seems you'd want one of the 2 speed guys at one & XB in the 2 hole, where his patience & OB acumen would play best.
