I was devastated to hear the Sox designate Mark Kotsay for assignment. He was an asset to the team and his clubhouse presence and skills will be missed. He is a first rate outfielder hitter and has exceptional footwork at first base.
His Red Sox t shirt is part of the Fenway Collection 1912. I am happy for him that he landed with a pennant contender. He will help stabilize the Chisox.
