I Thought Center Field was a Glamour Position

During yesterday’s Sox/Rangers tilt, after making a phenomenal catch, Jacoby Ellsbury reinjured the shoulder he tweaked earlier in the game, forcing him to have to come out. With the return of Mark Kotsay to the Sox bench, there are now two center field options, him and Rocco Baldelli and it seems neither was particularly excited to play center. The two men squared off in the oldest of baseball traditions, deciding who plays where via Rocks-Paper-Scissors. Baldelli wins and gets to play right.

I like that Tito allowed this, after all, what’s the difference? Both men play the position solidly and no one else was available with JD Drew having received a cortisone shot earlier in the day. No reason to make it a big deal. I like it!

Red Sox Nation Eagerly Welcomes Kotsay

Despite hitting a double in his first at-bat with the Red Sox, I would say Red Sox nation is at most ambivalent to the recent arrival of Mark Kotsay. However, those of us who follow baseball closely ARE excited for one major aspect of the addition of Kotsay to the team, that would be the addition of Jamie Kotsay to the Red Sox family. Welcome Jamie! For those of you who are unfamiliar with Jamie, let us explain why we are so excited (she’s the one on the left):

Then there is this photo that launched her into the dreams of many:

Jamie, who works as a model when she isn’t participating in team wife baseball games, is a very very welcome addition to the Red Sox and hopefully Theo will sign her to a very long-term deal. Mark on the other hand…

Anyway welcome to the city Jamie, welcome to the Olde Towne Team and, by all means, feel free to leave your husband for any of the one bloggers on this site.

(Oh, and for anyone wondering, in any group shot Jamie is always on the left side of the photo, I guess that’s her good side, although I haven’t found a side I dislike yet…)
