The Beginning of an Era: The first of many to come

Kottaras_Wake1

Last night marked the beginning of an era…the George Kottaras era in Red Sox history. Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves, he’s still the back-up, but George did his job and that’s all we can ask for. After striking out in his first AB, George did what he does best, collecting a single into Right Field. He ended the night going 1-for-3, which so far is second on the team (that doesn’t even count). Behind the dish, was another story. Kottaras did a good job managing Wakefield’s Knuckleball, allowing a ball in the dirt to kick off his wrist, which allowed the runner to advance. Throwing runners out was, as you can imagine, an “interesting” experience. The Angels were 4-for-4 stealing bases, which should have been 3-for-4 but the Umpire didn’t seem to agree with me. All in all, George played well, and I look forward to seeing him catch very soon!

Kottaras did well, but that throw to second definitely needs work. Good to see him getting a hit though.
