The Promised Bat

Arte Moreno keeps his word.

A little late, but better late, etc.

Mark reminded me this morning
, in an elliptical sort of way, that I had not mentioned anything about the Teixeira acquisition. Consider that remedied. I am delighted. Mostly delighted, anyway. Kind of sorry to see Kotchman go, though. There was a time I wouldn't have believed I'd ever type that. Early on in his stint with the Angels I got mightily tired of hearing Rory Markus say the words "bounced off Kotchman's glove" yet again. But I haven't heard that in a while and I'll miss him.

I'm hoping to be consoled with a lot more hits from the third spot in the lineup.
