Don't Drink the Water

Along with the news that Razor Shines is being sent home from Venezuela comes word that Brian Anderson has dropped 20 pounds in 2 weeks and is also heading back to Chicago. I still haven't found out exactly what happened; he probably just picked up a bug and got pretty sick, but this is very bad news for BA and the Sox. It's not like BA is the Big Papi type that could stand to lose a few pounds. Now along with his hitting, he's going to have to work on getting back all the muscle he's lost.

BA has struggled out in Venezuela; odds are this illness, or whatever it is, is responsible for his paltry .211 SLG in 19 games, but he needed a strong showing to earn back some of the faith that was placed in him at the start of the season. At this point it looks as though Sweeney, Anderson and maybe Owens are going to be duking it out in Spring Training for the CF job, unless KW brings in someone from the outside.

Glad to see Razor is off to such a sharp start getting fired in Venezuela. Hope he doesn't get baserunners thrown out by a razor-thin margin at home. Yuck Yuck Yuck!
