Extractions: Red Sox Patriots Celtics Bruins ... Red Sox BASEBALL NOTES May 22, 2005 Second thoughts about going to Japan? ADVERTISEMENT ''I have not had second thoughts," Gabe Kapler said by e-mail. ''I skipped right past second and have had third, fourth, fifth, and so on." A month after the Red Sox won the World Series, Kapler became the first player to leave, signing with the Yomiuri Giants, the New York Yankees of Japanese baseball. Kapler, a valuable utilityman for the Sox, had filled in admirably while Trot Nixon was injured and wound up appearing in 136 games, batting .272 in 290 at-bats, and was extremely popular among his teammates for his gung-ho play. But he elected to leave for more money (a $2 million deal plus a signing bonus, $700,000, that nearly matched the $750,000 salary he received last season), and the chance to prove he could be an everyday player. When he hit a three-run home run in his first at-bat in Yomiuri's first exhibition game, Kapler's plan appeared to be progressing nicely. Certainly it didn't foreshadow that in mid-May, he would be buried on the bench, batting .156 and an easy target for fans frustrated that the Giants are in last place in Japan's Central League. But in a phone conversation from his temporary home in Tokyo Friday night, Kapler acknowledged that he sensed early on that he'd made a mistake.
Extractions: Who is this guy? The odds are against you when you get drafted in the 57th round of the 1995 June draft, and going anywhere in the organization would seem to be a plus. However, Gabe has turned being the underdog into a heroic tale. In 1998, he batted .322, with 47 doubles, 6 triples, 28 HR's, and 146 RBI's to win the Southern League MVP. He then got the call to the Majors. Although he had struggled mightily at times in adapting to big league pitching, Kapler found a way to make contact. He was the key player to replace Juan Gonzalez in the Texas outfield when he was traded from the Tigers for the slugger after the 1999 season. All he has done since is play his heart out for the Longhorn state's fans. He swatted two home runs on Opening Day, 2000, and pieced together a 28 game hitting streak that same season. Even with all the transactions and new signings that Texas has made to put the best team on the field, Kapler seems to have made the cut in 2002. Putting in long sessions with Bucky Dent seems to have paid off thus far, and if it continues, Gabe should endear himself to Texas fans for years to come.
Extractions: Comments Our chemistry improves, but our bench is almost certainly weaker. Oh well. Here's hoping Kapler/Stern can be effective. If not, well ... there's still Chip Ambres. Posted by: Sam at July 14, 2005 08:47 PM I'm assuming he'll be going to the minor leagues, because I really want to see Stern for now. I am glad he is back, though. You know, it's killing me to watch this game tonight. Arroyo pitches horrible and our bullpen fails to keep a lead. Seems to be the story of our year. I'm really, really tired of seeing Embree blow games and I think Theo needs to realize that he is no longer helping us. The Red Sox are a great team, but I would have a heart attack if I watched them every night. Hopefully we can win tonight. Posted by: Mike at July 14, 2005 09:58 PM

Extractions: Gabriel Stefan Kapler Gabe Kapler was born on August 31, 1975. A workout buff who has appeared on the cover of fitness magazines (and whose mother works at a Jewish pre-school), Kapler was a member of the Boston Red Sox World Championship team in 2004, having also played with Boston in 2003 when they reached the AL Championship Series. In November 2004, Gabe signed a contract with the Yomiuri Giants to play the 2005 campaign in Japan. Kapler has a Star of David On September 26, 2001, Los Angeles Dodgers star Shawn Green sat out a game that fell on Yom Kippur . When asked whether or not he would do the same, Kapler said, "What Shawn is doing is commendable..That makes my decision that (much) more difficult. Nobody is more proud of their heritage than I am and nobody is more proud of being Jewish than I am. It's something I have to mull over. I have mixed emotions. I don't want to appear hypocritical because... I don't know what I would be doing if I wasn't playing baseball that day. It might not be going to the synagogue ." Kapler ended up playing on September 26, which was a day game and ended before the start of Yom Kippur. Gabe went 3-4 with two home runs that day, but the Rangers lost to Seattle, 7-5.
