I was going to say that I’ve made the decision to take my talents to South Beach but I heard that someone took that line already. Seriously, I wanted to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the city of Boston, its fans, the Red Sox and especially my teammates for providing me the best three-plus years of my baseball life.

When I was first traded to the Red Sox in the late summer of 2010, I was thrilled and humbled to be able to join such a storied franchise in such a great city. But honestly, I never in my wildest expectations thought it would be the tremendous experience it turned out to be. This Southern boy became absolutely amazed at the warmth and hospitality that a New England town’s fans provided me and my family.

It’s pretty obvious that this past season was one that was special in too many ways to count. Walking to Fenway Park every day to go to battle with teammates I loved, in front of the world’s greatest fans, was something that I’ll cherish long after my playing days are over.

But I am now starting another chapter in my baseball life in a place that is, actually and in reality, home. I’m very grateful for the opportunity the Marlins have provided and extremely excited to bring with me the lessons learned from my Boston experience.

So I close with once again thanking all of you for the opportunity to be a small part of Boston Red Sox history. It was an unbelievable experience.

    So when the yanks sign tanaka and everyone in the baseball world knows they will they would have spent at least 400 mill this offseason what a disgrace. They are a sorry excuse for a baseball franchise . This is why we need a cap and one day might not be in my time but when we do they should call it the Yankee cap. I for one am so sick of this team just spending like a boy in a candy store. 400 million what a joke it sickens me to think that this is what this great game has become and u can pretty much thank the yanks for it.

    I am sick of you. I am sick of Red Sox fans who can’t handle success with humility. I am sick of a system that continually changes rules in an attempt to thwart the Yankees. Yes, Trap, a lot of us are sick and fed up.
