Since 2006 I have been pulling for Brian Anderson to do well. He has shown flashes of brilliance, but has never really reached the potential that we all thought that he would. They have given him several chances, the longest in 2006, but he has never taken hold of the center field job. When he was sent back down to Charlotte last week he demanded a trade. Apparently he no longer wanted to be a member of the Chicago White Sox. Today the White Sox officially ended that phase of his career by trading him to the Boston Red Sox. In return they recieved Mark Kotsay. Kotsay is an outfielder who can play a little first base. They also received cash considerations. Brian brought us a decent player and cash? Good for him. When Mark joins the team you will have to wonder who will be left off the Sox roster? Will Dewayne Wise the hero of the Buehrle perfect game be sent down? He has no options left, and could be taken by another team. Will the unsung hero of the same game Josh Fields be sent down. He seems more likely since Kotsay can spell Pauly at first, and play the outfield. Wise is also a favorite of Ozzie’s to pinch run so that may save him. Tomorrow should be an interesting day. Either way Brian has changed his Sox, and I wish him the best of luck. I hope that he pans out to be the player I have always thought that he could be. I think the change of scenery could be just what he needs. He just better take it easy on us when we play the Red Sox from now on. I wonder what song they will play for him when he steps up to the plate in September?
