First, I'll remember what a good citizen he was, and how well he represented the Red Sox with class. He was nominated eight times for the Roberto Clemente Award, winning the award in 2010.
Second, I'll remember how he would pitch in any role, start, middle/long relief, close and never complain, never worry about how the stats would effect his pay check (at least I never heard him complain).
Last, the unbelieveable start to his Red Sox career. Released from the Pirates, went to triple A Pawtucket, with Clemens and Sele hurt, came up the next year and went 14–1 record through the first 17 games! Incredible story. He was the Sporting News American League Comeback Player of the Year and finished third in the AL Cy Young Award balloting. You can't make this stuff up.
You must be careful how you walk and where you go, for there are those following you who will set their feet where yours are set.
