The New Kid's Ready
Our local new kid, Rocco Baldelli, from Rhode Island is ready for his season to begin. If you remember, he is the man who, in the ALCs against the Red Sox, may have sealed the Rays' win! Now he seems perfectly happy to be playing for the team he grew up cheering for! He does have injury issues however, he was out most of last year with a form of cancer, (just like our buddy, Lester) but got better and played very well. He has some power, some speed, and is a good fielder. I expect with the outfield they've got (Bay, Ellsbury, Drew) he will be a backup, but maybe not.
