When it looked like Clay Buchholz was going to go on the DL, the Red Sox summoned Fabio Castro from Pawtucket to help out the bullpen.
But when it was clear they needed more infield depth with Pedroia going down, Theo pulled off a deal with the A’s to bring in utility man Eric Patterson and Castro was designated for assignment without appearing in a game.
How could you do it, Tito?
How could you NOT bring in Fabio Castro?
You have the ability to have the P.A. announcer say “Now pitching… FABIO CASTRO!”
And you passed that up?
For what? For Manny DelCarmen to get another appearance?
I hope nobody claims him… I have no idea if he sucks or not. I just want to hear the words “Fabio Castro gets the out.”
And be honest with me… you do too.
I don’t care that the Rangers have a 3 1/2 game lead, currently the biggest lead in the bigs.
I don’t care that Kendry Morales ended his own season.
I’ve been saying this for the past month and a half and I stand by it.
The Rangers will wither, the A’s are a few horses short and the Mariners are waving the white flag.
I am sick of the Angels in the post season too but it is going to happen whether we like it or not.
How the hell does THAT work?
The Sox have a day off on Monday AND a day off on Thursday and only play 2 against Tampa.
It’s like the schedule makers knew the Red Sox were going to be all banged up and needed a few days to rest.
Funny, they could see the Red Sox needed a breather but they couldn’t see the G-20 Summit was on the calendar and screwed over the poor Blue Jays.
