Farewell Santiago, Hello Eaton

Every time something new pops up on my Sox feed, I hear the song “Changes” by Tupac in my head.   Today we say goodbye to the entertaining lefty hurler, Hector Santiago (last season went 4-7 with a 3.51 ERA in 23 starts. 0-2 with a 3.93 ERA in 11 relief appearances), as he heads off to the Los Angeles Angels.   Personally, I’ll miss him being around. Sox fans will argue that his stats weren’t too ...

Tigers Release Brennan Boesch, Sox Still in Need of Left Handed Power Bat?

Outfielder Brennan Boesch was released by the Detroit Tigers Wednesday morning, and general manager Dave Dombroski said "a half dozen" clubs were interested in the left-handed hitting slugger. With a new left-handed bat on the market, can Rick Hahn pass up the opportunity to add an impact left-handed bat? The argument will come up that Boesch is streaky and why should the Sox invest in a guy who might perfo ...
