Dougie Baseball

After forcing a trade from the Twins last summer, Doug Mientkiewicz’s season ended well, I’d say- as Red Sox first baseman, he caught the last out of Boston’s historic World Series win.

Yea- that ending isn’t looking so good anymore. Mientkiewicz still has the ball, and has told team officials that he doesn’t plan on giving it back. He may have a legal claim, for all I know, but I wouldn’t say this is such a great PR move- after all, before, his place was secure as "the guy who caught the last out". Now, he’s "the guy who wouldn’t give back the ball"

And speaking of ex-Twins corner infielders… who knew Corey Koskie made enough of an impact on Minnesota to place a full-page “thank you” ad on his way out of town?

And only one week after I switch to only sat. and sun. delivery. Wished I saw this earlier to go and get that newspaper.
