I'd say Willie Harris since he can play both. I'm also not sure what Mohr's status is. Did he have to accept the assignment to the minors? IE would we risk losing him if we called him up and tried to send him down again?

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I love Crisp and I hate to see the Sox lose him for any period of time, but I'm a little excited for Adam Stern. We never got to see what he had last year so now he'll get his chance. For a period of 10-15 days, I think they'll be fine with him and Pena offensively. Pena in center scares me a bit, though. Perhaps against lefties, maybe they'll consider playing Ortiz at first and DHing Ramirez with Pena, Stern, and Nixon left to right in the outfield. I'd hate to lose range in center, though Nixon has looked good so far out there in right so it may not be as big a factor as I think it is.

And finally this front office locks someone up long-term before the end of their contract. Great signing to keep Ortiz in Boston for basically the duration of his best playing days.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Ortiz in a Boston uniform til 2010-11= The AL East trembling in fear!

Oh and I have a question, why does opening day in Boston start at 2 PM? Is there some story behind that or just tradition?

For the last few years it has started at 2. I don't know how far back the tradition goes, though.

It's about time schools get out so I don't know if that matters.

Yes, Mohr accepted the demotion to AAA instead of looking to catch on to another major ball club.

Ortiz isn't the greatest looking man in the world (understatement)... But at least he can dress well.
