    Backup 1B/OF for years to come

    He was terrible in Boston. Dont get it. He showed nothing in the playoffs, and didnt get any offers anywhere else. Lifetime .281 but I never saw that. would love it if he rebounds and plays like he did in Atlanta.

    I agree with most of what you said but he did play pretty well defensively and does have the potential to turn around that dismal offensive output during the playoffs by being here all season !!

    Definitely a solid insurance option, especially considering he is our 5th outfielder right now.

    I like Kotsay too...he's a gamer who can play multiple positions. He's also a chemistry guy, fits in well, very capable. I think he will play well for us this year. Rocco will also play well just watch. Varitek? Sad situation if he doesn't sign but life goes on. Hey Josh Bard may surprise..He had a couple of good years in SD..getting back to Kotsay I think he is why we won't go after Adam Dunn simpley because Kotsay can play defense, can hit for average, always plays hard, LOVES BOSTON, and is a cheap stop gap for Lars Anderson in 2010! Amen, Go Sox!

    Kotsay is good veteran insurance and it's refreshing that a former starter is willing to accept a bench role. On the other hand, I'd like to see Chris Carter get a chance to make the team in this role. I think he's got a good bat, more power potential than Kotsay I feel. The problem though is his glove needs a lot of work.

    I too was underwhelmed by his hitting, but he looked good with the glove. Still, the glove can only go so far. Plus he's a lefty.

    "Kotz" in German means "vomit". And that's what I feel like doing when I see Kotsay at the plate. He was so inept during the ALCS that he left something like 25 runners on base. According to Mike Francesa of New York's WFAN in giving his postmortem after the ALCS, "Kotsay killed the Red Sox".

    I hope he can on occasion move runners along instead of constantly leaving them stranded.

    I remember him in the playoffs-he was smoking almost everything-but always right at a fielder, or just too far, or not high enough. If the ball was a few inches in any direction, them thar would be hits, and we would be lauding his performance. But, man, he sure played some good 1st base there. He's good people, too, from what I've read.

    I'm pleased to see him coming back. Maybe his being familiar with the team and the setting, things could be different this time around. One can hope, can't I?

    Kotsay's comment are a great tribute to the kind of first rate top line organization Theo & Co. are building in Boston. It is a great time to be a Sox fan.

    Kotsay needs to tell the truth, he wanted a FT job and didnt get it so he simply took best offer. He is a decent ball player and it never hurts to have them, but his interview was simply p/c.

    I think this guy is a formidable player with excellent stats for a bench player. Excellent defense, plays 4 positions, bats from the left side, hits for average over the course of his career, still relatively young. I think this is a great pick up. let's see what he does with a whole year in a sox uniform. He will see alot of playing time. Francona likes him.
