Dewon Day? He Gone!

Dewon Day was claimed by the Boston Red Sox off of waivers.

Will Dewon improve upon his 0-1 major league career record with 11.25 ERA? It stands to reason that he would, if given a shot to crack the Boston bullpen.

With only 13 games to his credit and 12 innings pitched, Dewon has managed to finish 6 games with no saves. He gave up 19 hits, 15 runs all earned), 1 home run, 9 walks, 7 strikeouts, 2 hit by pitches and 1 wild pitch.

It seems that if he could learn a little control and spot his pitches, he might have a chance at being slightly more effective. He might be a lost cause, but who knows? Stranger things have happened. When he finally pieces it together, he could be a decent middle reliever.

Maybe he will take going back to the AL east (he was picked up from the Blue Jays from a Rule V draft) to heart and improve. Are the Red Sox this desperate to overtake the Rays next season? Maybe. I doubt that is the motivating factor. Maybe they need to fill a spot in AAA.

Heck, maybe I'll try out. I am a lefty :)

With your lineage and your lefty status, you never know. :)

Or not :) I can't catch a baseball. At all. So my 'career' would last only as long as it took the catcher to throw me the ball. Hmmm, that would still pay me $140,000 or so, wouldn't it?
