When asked what he thought of the ballpark, he replied: "Too big."Gotta work a dig about the Cell in there, huh?

Awesome move by Iguchi - this guy is a class act, and I would love to see him here for a few more seasons.

I hope Gooch is around for years to come. He's a solid 2nd baseman and a great man.

Gooch actually gave the kid the 10k a while ago. I think it was after he first visited him in the hospital.

It's nice to see a class act like him on the team, along with other guys like Thome. Knowing that some or most of the guys you are rooting for are stand-up people makes it a little bit easier to root for them when they are going through a tough stretch like lately.

And have a hot dog, which might not be the best thing for his new heart - but I'm not doctor. ;)

I know. I was just commenting on the fact that the title says "Iguchi gives kid 10k" as if it was the recent story. I realize he just visited the park in the Yankees series.

Iguchi is a total class act and the team should do everything to sign him now while he's cheap this season.

That said....WHO ON THE TEAM WAS WATCHING "FRIENDS?" Yow.

I have to say that I was wondering the exact same thing.

That said, Iguchi is a class act. I hope the Sox can resign him. =)

I hear AJ really wants to know if Ross and Rachel got back together

What a great compliment. Nothing we do in life will ever overshadow being remembered as "a great man."

Great gift by Tadahito and great to see the young man is doing well. I too hope we re-sign Tadahito.
