Peace, Yamaico. We hardly knew ye…

No wonder you got so much playing time lately, Yamaico! You were Theo Epstein’s very own version of a buyer’s showcase.

It was almost good while it lasted, Yamaico. I mean, it was okay. I mean, it didn’t suck. Most of the time. You hit the ball that one time. Remember?

I feel like we should say a few words about our evicted comrade.

Like… share our favorite Yamaico memories. Okay.

You start.



I’ll start.


It was cool. When you hit the ball. That one time. It was a homerun? In Texas, maybe?

Have fun in Kansas. There’s lots to do in Kansas. Really. Everyone’s favorite movie is based in Kansas.

(See, Yamaico? This could be you. But without the singing and stuff.)

I mean, I think “Wizard of Oz” was filmed in California. And um… most of it is based in… um… Oz… But. Um.

And they have a lot of farms in Kansas. And everyone has to eat. I like eating.

Oh. And there’s that possibility that a tornado might sweep you up into a colorful metaphor for growing up.




Have a good life.

“I think it’s probably good for him because I think he’ll get a chance to probably play more there than he would here,” Francona said. “We certainly wish him well.”

In other news, you were replaced by Mike Aviles, called a “utility” infielder.

(Does he look like he’s compensating for something in this shot? Just asking…)

“He’s a guy I think our organization has kind of liked from afar for a while,” said Red Sox manager Terry Francona. “He came up — he was that guy that could really hit left-handers — actually both.”

I wish I had paid better attention when the Royals were in town.

I think THIS is encouraging, at least.

So, Soxies… thoughts? Comments? Casual observations? Styling tips? Leave a comment. And feel free to shoot me critical e-mails- ohnolauren@gmail.com.

    This screams “fisrt step” to me. Trade a utility infielder for a utility infielder a week before your utility infielder gets off the DL?

    Good point 36.

    I actually have several memories of this kid but they are all from pre-season. He hot like crazy in pre-season. I think.
