Big Papi David Ortiz, while promoting his golf tournament in the Dominican Republic, told reporters that his wrist is feeling much better. That's good news for every Boston Red Sox fan. He also stressed that the Sox need to add a "30 home run guy." Do you think he was alluding to Mark Teixeira? I do. He's such an ideal fit for this team, it's scary. Papi also mentioned that the Yankees will upgrade their underacheiving team in any way possible, regardless of the cost. A bidding war on multiple fronts is very possible starting Friday, November 14th, the first day free agents can be signed. I hope the Sox pull out all the stops and sign Teixeira to a long term deal. He's young (29 in April), he's a gifted switch hitter and a gold glove first baseman. Need I say more? Thought so.
Meanwhile, in the big bad Bronx, there are founded rumors that the pinstriped Yankees will pursue CC Sabathia to the ends of the earth. They are still waiting for Moose Mussina's retirement decision, but either way, they want to see Sabathia in a Yankee uniform. Who can blame 'em? Let them spend tens of millions on the portly pitcher, I'll take the 30 home run guy. Boston will also add a starter, a catcher and shore up the 'pen...they have to. Case closed...get the logs out and let the fun begin.
That's it from me...for now. Have a great Hump Day Wednesday, title click for more Boston Red Sox comings and goings and as always, BE WELL. I'll let you know what the doctor said about my left shoulder in my next post. Hint: "Massive" (his word) rotator cuff and tendon tear injury, non-repairable by surgery. I guess I spilled the beans, didn't I? No matter what, I'll be here every day...for you.
