Rocco Baldelli is a classy guy

Fresh off the heels of an anti-Red Sox post, I give you something good that their newest player did. Rocco Baldelli, the former Tampa Bay Ray who recently signed with Boston, took out an ad in the St. Petersburg Times to thank the fans. (Click image to enlarge)
Baldelli missed most of the 2008 season due to an illness that caused extreme fatigue, but was still an integral part of the Rays' postseason run once he returned. At one time, Rocco was "the next Joe DiMaggio," mostly because he is Italian and the mainstream media isn't very creative, but also because of his talent. He was always a popular figure in South Florida and it's nice to see that he appreciated it.
