I saw he hit a homerun yesterday for the Redsox. I never understood this guy though. He always seems to do pretty well but he gets released every year. I suppose it's basically because he's injury prone.
He seems to be really well liked by fans on every team he's been on too. I know the Whitesox and Brewer fans really loved this guy. He seems to have a nice buzz about him in Boston and it's only been a few days since he's gotten there.

"I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)
