Who's On First? Whaa??

Hello on this single digit Friday morning. Brrr! I read a transcript of Terry Francona's comments on Boston radio station WEEI, home of the Boston Red Sox. Among them was this gem. Essentially, he said he'd be OK with Casey Kotchman playing first base, moving Youk to third, where he's very comfortable. Kotchman plays the position well and would bat near the bottom of the Sox order. Ellsbury, Buchholz etc. would stay if that were to happen. On the negative side, that much needed bat for the middle of the Boston order would be missing in action. Was Tito being coy with a misdirection play? To be honest, I really don't know. The Red Sox right now are a vastly improved team over the 2009 version, but so are the pinstripers. We'll see what Theo has up his sleeve...soon. Adding a bat like Adrian Gonzales would surely make the Boston Red Sox the favorites to win the 2010 World Series. That much is certain. Now we wait, and see. As Tom Petty wrote and sang, "the waiting is the hardest part."

We here in north central Connecticut have our eyes on a major storm that right now is affecting Georgia on its northeastern trek. How close it comes to us is all important. If it veers a little towards the east, we'll receive one to two inches of snow. But if it hugs the coast JUST A LITTLE, we will get one to two FEET. The Connecticut meteorologists have to carefully monitor the track of the storm and they'll know SO much more in twenty four hours. I'll let you know. Count on it.

Have a great Friday and a terrific weekend. If there is any breaking Red Sox news, you'll read it right here. Please come back often. I write a post every morning with more if necessary. Click on this post's title for more on the Sox and as always, BE WELL. Thanks.
