      It kinda bugs me, then I just think about the HR Aaron Boone hit, or Bucky’s long ball, or Luis Sojo’s single in the 2001 series, or the Tino-Brosius HRs in 2001, or Jeffrey Maier, or…

      I just noticed that 4 of those 5 ‘bugs’ have played for the Red Sox at one time or another in their careers. Coincidence?

      It also begs the question – when will Tony Womack get his chance? =)

      In an unreleated item, Sheffield has been implicated in the Bonds book as having injected himself with steroids. I have to believe that this won’t be as big as Bonds, but will still be a pretty substantial issue. The last thing we needed.

      He almost did, in 2004. He was traded to the Cards before ever playing a game in Boston.
