Speaking of loyalty about baseball players to teams, I had the pleasure of being a fan of Tek. And even as he aged and lost his power with the bat, as well as a smaller role, he still stayed with the Sox. He and Dustin are probably the epitome of loyalty to the Sox, from the farm to the end (unknown for PD, but I'm sure he will).
Tek is one of my all time faves! I’m so glad he stayed here until the end; he was a true team player. I really think Pedey will do the same. At some point, I think there will be a C on his chest too :)
Whatever about Ells. Now I'm hoping for Cruz or Choo. Plus we picked up the best shit talker in the league.
I think it’ll take me a while to get over Ells, tbh. I don’t rly like Cruz (esp after the ped suspension) but I love Choo! I don’t think the Sox will go after him because he’s in the exact same situation as Ells, and he didn’t take their offer, so I don’t think the Sox will offer any higher for Choo (and he won’t take lower bc same agent ugh). I feel like they’ll just give Jackie a shot but idk? I don’t even wanna think about AJ… I just don’t like him at all but I’ll put up with it for a season :/
When I was in 7th grade, I won one of those KISS108 caller 25 things. The prize was lunch with Johnny Damon. Although there were several winners, I ended up next to him at dessert. After he let me wear the ring, I asked him about going to the Yankees. I had heard rumors and was devastated that my favorite player may go to the dark side. He looked me straight in the face and told me that Boston was his home and the Sox were his family, and that he would never leave. Fucker lied to a 13 girl for $
Dude, wtf. That is just cruel. Sorry you had to go through that :( I wish baseball players could just be honest and loyal people </3
