So long Alex, it was good while it lasted but it's time to move on. You had a helluva year in 2012, and 2010 was nice too. Good luck in Texas.

He pretty much reminded me of a Garrett Anderson. Same kind of player; good player with very low intensity; just kind of went through the motions. Had pretty much a blah personality; never said much one way or the other.

When he wanted to show it, he had all of the tools. Just didn't always want to show it.

I don't believe that Sox fans will treat him poorly when he returns, unlike Blue Jays "fans."

Good luck in Texas and elsewhere, Alex.

They aren't. Sox fans usually don't do that, unless the guy's named Swisher.

Sox are better by subtraction. Good luck in Texas, and take your attitude with you. Maybe you will run out all ground balls, and tag up when necessary.

I'll miss watching him run
I feel exactly the same way. He was my favorite player to watch because he was so graceful; like watching a gazelle out there. Unfortunately I also share in the frustration over a perceived lack of effort at times.

Good luck in Texas, Alex. It will be interesting to see how you perform down the stretch.
