My mind is a dangerous place. Make sure you wear a cup.

Yaz! Yaz! Yaz!

Yaz was my hero growing up.

Carl Michael Yastrzemski. Played for the Boston Red Sox from 1961 through 1983. 23 seasons.

All this Johnny Damon stuff and rebuilding of the team over the offseason has made me nostalgic for the good old days when players stayed with the same team for their whole career or damn near.

I loved to watch him play. He played the game hard, and no one worked harder to get the most out of his talent than Number Eight.

I would stop everything when it was his turn at bat.

Captain Carl.

I miss him.
