Hump Day Wednesday Plus One...Two HUGE Boston Red Sox Question Marks For 2011
The Boston Globe's Peter Abraham ran the following in this morning's issue of the newspaper or its web site. These are based on sales for season 2010 and I'm sure Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez will be up there after the 2011 season, approaching us at Warp speed. Here you go...
"Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association had an interesting press release today. It detailed the most popular jerseys based on 2010 sales figures. Derek Jeter, as you might expect, was first. Dustin Pedroia was eighth and Jacoby Ellsbury 16th. Given that he played only 18 games last season, that's a strong showing for Ellsbury. No other Red Sox were in the top 20. Anybody surprised Kevin Youkilis isn't in there somewhere? In terms of team sales: 1. Yankees, 2. Red Sox, 3. Dodgers, 4 Phillies, 5. Cubs, 6. Cardinals, 7. White Sox, 8. Braves, 9. Twins, 10. Tigers."
I think Jeter is and has been the list's number one for so many years because he's handsome (some would say) and with that he gets the female vote plus he plays for the NY Yankees. A winning combination for a guy with steadily declining skills. No YOUK?? Wow. And Pedey down at number eight. Ahh, all this means nothing on a March 24th morning, almost a full week before the baseball festivities begin. Well I say this...LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
