    December 28, 2010:
    Christmas Red Sox Swag…

    Posted by Christine E. at 4:34 pm in Baseball,Holiday,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    True to form, my most excellent husband got me GREAT Red SoxRed Sox Hat gear for the holiday season–A Red Sox Santa Hat, Whoo Hoo!

    And you better believe that it was on my head from the moment I unwrapped it until Christmas was over. Tons of Coolness!

    Coming up next week, on Wednesday, January 5th, the BBWAA will announce the class of 2011 Hall of Fame Selections. Will Bert Blyleven and Roberto Alomar, who missed my the tiniest of margins (74.2% and 73.7% respectively) get enough votes to get them into the Hall? Let’s hope so. In addition to Alomar and Blyleven, the rest of the eligible are below:

    Carlos Baerga
    Jeff Bagwell
    Harold Baines
    Bret Boone
    Kevin Brown
    John Franco
    Juan Gonzalez
    Marquis Grissom
    Lenny Harris
    Bobby Higginson
    Charles Johnson
    Barry Larkin
    Al Leiter
    Edgar Martinez
    Tino Martinez
    Don Mattingly
    Fred McGriff
    Mark McGwire
    Raul Mondesi
    Jack Morris
    Dale Murphy
    John Olerud
    Rafael Palmeiro
    Dave Parker
    Tim Raines
    Kirk Rueter
    Benito Santiago
    Lee Smith
    B.J. Surhoff
    Alan Trammell
    Larry Walker

    Ya know, no one happier than I am about how the off-season has been shaping up for the Sox, specifically the acquisition of Adrian Gonzales, but do we really need a contest to give him some lame-o nickname? Unfortunately, it appears we do. NESN had a poll earlier in the week, and these were the choices, submitted by readers:

    Gonzilla
    El NiƱo
    Gonner
    El Padre

    Really? I always thought a nickname is something that should come organically over time–not some media contrivance (read: A-Rod…UGH) So I think I will pass on the whole voting thing…

    Finally, for those of you who have been waiting: The Baseball Bloggers Alliance Android App is now available! And if you are still looking for the i-Phone App, you can get that here…Check it out!
