Oh No!

The Red Sox released Doug Mirabelli.
The Red Sox released Doug Mirabelli?
The Red Sox released Doug Mirabelli!!!

I’ve got nothing against Kevin Cash. And I’ve learned over the last few years to: “Let go and let Theo”, even though some of his decisions have been difficult to take. But I can’t believe letting Doug Mirabelli go is a good idea. I admit, I’m hopelessly sentimental and Doug’s state trooper escorted return to Fenway Park in 2006 was a peak baseball moment for me. But can Cash really catch Wakefield’s knuckleball? And is Cash’s defensive performance good enough to offset his weak offensive numbers?

Sometimes spring training truly sucks.

I really wish I had something to say on this after so long of not commenting! Anyway, at least I am saying hi!

Hi Ronnie -
Just knowing you care, in this hour of sadness for Red Sox Nation, does our hearts good!
