Awfully harsh for a guy who basically cost nothing.

He pitched two scoreless innings with us...in blowouts.

Well we all saw this coming, Esteban's unfortunately lost a step.

Esty did it to himself by not staying in game shape after getting released by the Dodgers. If he had continued on a throwing program, he might have been able to stick with the Sox bullpen. Can't say I feel sorry for him. Thanks for 2003 though Esteban. That was an amazing year. I'll try to forget the lazy 2008 version.:cool:

At least he'll get a World Series ring out of it.

I don't think it mattered much. He was throwing 78 with LA and got it up to 80 in his rehab starts. I doubt those 2 weeks would have made enough difference. His shoulder was cashed.

Ah, I didn't realize that his arm was toast before he got here. The Sox made it sound like it was a conditioning issue. Perhaps they were just trying to save some face.

Somebody asked Don Cooper about Esteban at the WCSF luncheon Tuesday. He basically said he was through without actually coming out and saying so. ("Don't look for any help from him unless something drastic happens.")

So we have a 40-man spot open now, right? And Linebrink and/or Thornton might be heading to the DL? And it's days before the trading deadline?

Times like this, I'm glad we have Kenny at the helm. Wow us, Ninja!

. His shoulder was cashed.

Yep.

Even when he was rearing back and slinging it at 85-88 mph in his first outing as a Sox against Cleveland, prompting Don Cooper to comment in the Trib the next day that he was suprised how much better Esteban's velocity was [than he expected it to be].... did anyone actually believe Loaiza was the answer?

So no big suprise nor loss.

He was done for. He knew it, we knew it. We gave him a shot for old times' sake, like a class organization would. We are nothing if not compassionate. Goodbye old friend.
