Then from the gladdened multitude went up a joyous yell.

So, we got this guy.




No, wait. This guy.






Who replaces that friggin' traitor, Johnny *spit* Damon.

And this kid? This kid rocks:

Nick Rowland, an 11th-grader from Orwell, Vt., wore a No. 18 shirt with the word ''Traitor" stenciled across the back -- a reference to Damon, the Jesus Action Figure who was Boston baseball's uber-celebrity in spring 2005, but crushed Sox fans by joining the Yankees this winter. Rowland and a lot of other Sox fans have embraced Crisp, the charismatic outfielder from Cleveland who is replacing Damon in center.


Screw the swallows at Capistrano. Yesterday was the first full roster workout. Now it's spring.

That is an uncanny likeness between the Cocoa Crispies monkey and the new addition to the Red Sawx.

His name is Coco Crisp. If we had Milton Bradley, too, we could have cereal with toys. Think of the promotional possibilities....

I will die if Cocoa Crispies asks the new guy to be a spokesperson for their cereal.

BASEBALL.

I went to NYC today with my Yankees-loving boyfriend and I felt myself break out in rage-induced hives. Gone are the days when he and I share a bed. We'll go back to sleeping together in October. :)

Spring training, baby.

Just think--I've been a Red Sox fan and a Cocoa Crispies fan all along.

Two great tastes that taste great togethah!
