Somebody Give This Guy A Job!
I wasn't as surprised when Shakespeare got released today as I was when the Red Sox signed him this offseason. It's common knowledge that we got him and Cla for Mirabelli because he was thoroughly incapable of catching Wakefield's knuckler. What the hell would have changed, Theo? It's not like he had
a whole lot of any opportunities to hone his knuckler-corralling skills since he left. The only theory that makes any sense to me is that they snagged him up to be their starter in case they couldn't bring Varitek back. I doubt Bardo will be unemployed for long; no other teams have the same set of all-or-nothing circumstances that forced him out of the Boston organization twice in three years.
