Nick Green

Former Yankee Nick Green has had a great year so far with the Red Sox. He's mostly on the bench now that Lugo's back, but racked up an impressive .302 average and .368 OBP while he was the Red Sox shortstop.

Came across this story about Nick Green's first (and only) time playing first base. It was with the Yankees...and he borrowed Andy Phillips' glove to do it.

I gather from Dirk Hayhurst's blog that lending their gloves is not something players like to do. He said when examining another player's glove, it's okay to put your fingers in, but not your whole hand. But I guess needs must. Poor Craig Wilson had to lend his glove to Gary Sheffield, when Sheff tried to play 1B.
