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.
8-6 The team is just working together and winning games. Bailey just cranked a 3 run homer. This team is solid. My only worry is the age. They need a healthy Kotsay to play some centerfield.
A shortstop could be within reach. Green is decent but has no range, I would not count on Lowrie (wrist) or Lugo (history).
The Fenway Collectio 1912 made a major purchase today. I picked t\up the bullpen phone from Fenway Park ! I only hope I can get Papelbon to sign it.
