Kapler hopes to manage a comeback as player (http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/redsox/articles/2007/09/21/kapler_hopes_to_manage_a_comeback_as_player/)

He might be a nice pickup for somebody

If someone signs him, cue the theme song to Welcome Back Kotter.

I always find it interesting that he went to Japan, sucked there, then came back to the AL East and actually hit pretty well.

Was it that he didn't take Japanese baseball seriously enough? Was it that he was unfamiliar with the Japanese pitchers but knew the guys on the Yankees, Orioles, Blue Jays etc?

He might be a nice pickup for somebodywith a week to go, and no chance to be on a playoff roster?

I do like this from the same article:
The Red Sox announced they will team with the National Resources Defense Council in a five-year effort to make Fenway Park more environmentally friendly. The initiative will include a recycling program. Solar panels to provide energy are also being considered

No major league team has any decent recycling program. If the red sox could make fenway greener, it could have a big ripple effect on other teams.
