« My Boys | Main | An Ode to David Ortiz »

Coco's really testing me on this one. I loved watching him play before he ever came to the Red Sox and so the offseason trade had me enthralled. However, he needs to learn quickly that he doesn't have to do any more than he's already been doing (get on base, steal when it's safe to do so and play good defense). Coco: you don't need to prove that you're better than Johnny - we already suspect that is true. Just play hard and right and Red Sox fans will love you forever.


The way I look at it, it could have been worse, the way he kind of awkwardly stumbled into the plate catching his cleat, he could have screwed up his ankle or leg and then he'd really have a problem.

It sucks that this happened no doubt but at least he'll be back within a somewhat reasonable time table.

Also, I cant help but draw a football - baseball comparison here, Drew Bledsoe started and won 2 NFL games with a pin sticking out of the broken finger on his throwing hand... I'm not picking on anybody, I'm just sayin, 4 weeks (or longer) for a broken finger?
