It's Official........

From the AP......

"The Red Sox added outfielder JD Drew to their roster yesterday after the lefthanded pitcher Lenny DiNardo was claimed off waivers by the Athletics."

Peter here. Number seven is dead. Long live number seven. Trot, we'll see you during the season. We'll be standing and screaming our lungs out with love. There will never be another Trot, just an adequate, if not better, rightfielder. At the plate AND in the field. It's like when Dewey left. Manny wears number 24, but number 24 means Dewey to me. To so many of us. 24..a number that I think should be retired. But that's another story, another post. J.D.? Have a healthy year...stay away from the injury list. PLEASE! Your backup is WMP, a nice guy who supports diabetes research, but a man who STILL has trouble defensively, especially in Fenway's right. He is much more effective in center, with the ball angle easier to pick up and with less movement needed to track the ball right into the glove.
So good luck, Trot AND J.D. Red Sox Forever, and the pre-season is approaching at warp speed. Scotty, beam me to Fort Myers!! There's a great rib place called Michelbobs, with a sister restaurant in Naples that shares the same name. My parents lived in Naples after Hurricane Hugo blew our St. Croix USVI home into the heavens. And they have the best baby back ribs, the BEST onion rings, and their pitchers of Michelob will start out your dining experience with a smile. Michelbob's....if you go down to the Ft. Myers area to see some spring training games, ask how to get there. And when you have BOTH hands full of wonderful ribs and the lightest flakiest onion rings this side of Saturn's rings, sipping a cold beer, or their famous root beer, remember me, the person who steered you there. And yes, even though it's before 9AM here in CT., the thought of just waiting in line for a table at Michelbobs makes my mouth water, and my face smile. If you find yourself in the Ft. Myers/Naples area, remember my recommendation. You'll say....."Yumm, thanks Pete!"...............I miss that place so much!
