As for today's Completely Random Baseball Card:

Sure, last night's loss was frustrating, their second Second Guesser's Special in as many days. But if the Sox had to lose, I'm glad it was Pena who delivered the deciding blow. As a smitten Joe Castiglione told us roughly three times per inning the last few nights, he's one of us, a Haverhill native and lifelong Sox fan, and by all accounts he's one of the most genuinely nice people in baseball. I only wish - and I wrote this at the time - that the Sox could have found a place for him after his cameo in the '06 season. I still don't understand why Tito insisted on playing an injured Mark Loretta ahead of him at first base over the meaningless final few weeks.
