    I had initially written Wells down, but deleted him because he fit better as a Red Sox than the others. Since Wells had already played for 2 AL East teams, it wasn't that surprising to see him elsewhere.

    Before my time, but even as a kid it seemed like a weird fit when you'd find a card of his.

    Never could get used to seeing a crippled Orlando Cepada in a Sox uni but for me seeing the great Elston Howard playing for us in '67 was unreal.

    And does anyone wonder if the full truth be known that Cora probably hated Bloom who may have rationalized all of the above mismatches by trying to gain flexibility in the roster. Generally not the way high level MLB gets played.

    Oh, and the rest thing. Marcus Semien played in every one of the Rangers 172 games this year.

    He definitely filled out the uniform.

    Elston made a great block of the plate, and tag on a throw from Jose Tartabull against the White Sox.

    I can see that play like it happened yesterday. Tartabull of all people. Sox picked up a lot of guys at the ends of careers who actually helped them out. Remember Dick Groat?

    A good trivia question would be to name every Hall of Famer who played for the Red Sox at any time in their career.
