Coco Perfect; Damon's Not
The Coco Crisp Era is officially underway. Boston's new and improved centerfielder hit in the leadoff spot tonight in the Sox' first spring tilt and went 3-for-3 against the Twins, finishing a HR shy of going for the cycle. In other news, Johnny Traitor went 2-for-3 for the Yanks before heading off to play for Team USA. Coco's batting 1.000; Damon's at .667. Sox lost to the Twins, 6-3. Bit of a scare when young stud Jonathan Papelbon was hit just below the ankle with a rocket off the bat of Shannon Stewart. All reports indicate Pap is okay. "If it hit me right on the ankle bone, I'd probably be out three or four months," he told reporters after the game. Red Sox Nation breathes a collective sigh of relief.
The boys play Boston College tomorrow, in the annual John Harrington Classic.
Yep, and Megaman (and Tyler too) were there to see it first hand at the Fort(Minnesota's park.) We only could make 2 innings but saw 2 slap hits...I'm A Coco fan.Post a Comment
