Age: way too old for this
Location: Bedford, MA
Favorite Player(s): Derek Lowe, Doug Mirabelli, Doug Mientkiewicz, Shea Hillenbrand.
Favorite Team: Boston Red Sox
Favorite Park: Riverfront Stadium, Three Rivers Stadium, Nickerson Field, and okay, fine, Fenway Park.
Favorite thing about Doug: The way he makes it look so easy. On any other team, he's a starter, and he had to know that, but he patiently stays because he's needed here. It can't be easy being in the shadow of Jason Varitek, but he does it with grace, and style. And if Matt Clement keeps pitching like he pitched this weekend, Varitek will boycott and Doug will get two days of work instead of one.
I have a Doug Mirabelli montage hanging on my cube wall to remind me that all cogs in the machine are necessary to keep the machine working, and there's a different between being a backup catcher and elevating backup catcher to an art form.
