• He has sorious (sp, couldn’t find this word anywhere, hope you know what I’m talking about) of the skin and is embarrassed so he covers it up with one sleeve. Or he was trying to start a fashion trend and is ashamed to admit his failure.
  • This is why "I started doing it in Portland, just to keep my arm warm. I've never played baseball where it was so consistently cold for the first month. We had a foot and a half of snow the first couple of weeks. It's just a sleeve, not a shirt. It felt comfortable for me, so it just became part of my daily routine in Portland and continued in Pawtucket." And now in the Major Leagues. At the start of the 2008 season, he didn't wear the red sleeve. But he started out slowly, and baseball players being superstitious, decided to go back to it. Is it a coincidence that as soon as he put that sleeve back on, his batting average has begun to climb?
