Well he was "put on notice" by Ozzie a few weeks back but nothing has come of it. He has just been awful, and can't even get LH hitters out anymore. I think the only thing that keeps him here is that there is no one esle down there that can replace him.


The bullpen situation here in '08 is getting very ugly, and will get uglier if Linebrink doesn't come back soon.

I say defy that conventional wisdom and release him. Isn't there anyone in Charlotte who pitches with his left hand? He can't do any worse than Logan has as of late.

Logan is here only because there isn't anyone else in Charlotte who is any better. Our bullpen is decimated. Our rotation is in a rough spot too.

I wouldn't release a 23-year-old left-hander. That could come back to haunt us. Maybe he needs to go back to Charlotte, but given how pitching thin we are, I wouldn't advocate releasing anybody at this time.

Boone Logan is a twenty three year old lefty who has had great success in the past. He's struggled the past couple of weeks, but that's hardly a reason to completely give up on him. I don't mind sending him down to Charlotte, but calling for his out right release is a bit silly. He just needs to get back to throwing strikes.

That may very well be, but "great success in the past" is a bit of a stretch there.

Career: 4-3, 5.32 ERA, 108.1 innings, 127 hits, 47 walks, 91 K's, 13 home runs.

I don't understand this love for Boone Logan either. Very mediocre for his career so far. Yes he's 23, but this Ms Cleo crap about a "bright future" needs to stop. No one knows if he will ever get it together. The minors are full of 23 year old "bright future" people.

He's got quantifiable skills, good mechanics, decent mound presence, his problems are with command, that is a learnable skill.

Since 7/1 he has led to 5 Sox losses, if I never see him in a Sox uniform it will be to soon. In roughly 11 innings since the break he's given up 17 runs. 8 of those innings were when the Sox were ahead.

Well, earlier this year he certainly looked like a very good pitcher. He's only twenty three and has shown that he can get out major league hitters, I wouldn't completely throw in the towel on him yet.

Boone's still young, so maybe a shot at dominating AAA hitters will get him back to where he was earlier this season.

If he does well in Charlotte, he might even be back Sept 1st.

I'd expect Ramirez to replace him as the go-to lefty, and Broadway, not Richard would be the SP callup.

Based on Ozzie's, "This is a pennant race, I want men up here..." comment on the post game press conference, I have doubt as to whether he EVER comes back.

I know it's a completely different circumstance, but maybe this will resemble the wild ride of Sean Tracey? (Fail to hit Blalock, get sent down next day, get called up month later (appear in 1 game in 8 days), get sent down, get recalled September 10, get barely any work (3 games/2 IP in ~20 games), get claimed off waivers by Baltimore in March of the next year)

So he could be used tonight, be all dejected and disappointed, and give up four earned runs without recording an out?

I'll give you that. Boone's certainly in the doghouse.

But he's got better potential and done more for the Sox than Tracey. I doubt Kenny ditches the guy just 'cause Ozzie's mad at him... Look at B.A.:D:

Boone Logan has been terrible for months, has been a blight on the team, and has generally been worthless. But I would not trade him.

Logan needs to spend a lot of time in the minors and work on some pitches. Two years from now, he's only 25. And he's cheap. It's not like he's MacDougal, making more than a million dollars a year.

I was just going to post the same Ozzie-ism. Clearly Logan is deep in Guillen's doghouse right now. You have to throw strikes and control the count if you're going to survive pitching in the big leagues.

Logan stayed with the team as long as he did due to the dearth of left-handed relievers in the organization. Hopefully his recent problems won't affect his confidence too much, because chances are if he returns to the Sox and fails again, that will be it for him. Anywhere.

It would be a mistake to simply release him. He's young, he's cheap, he's lefthanded and has shown extended flashes of competence. Boone pitched very well until the K.C./Texas trip prior to the All Star game. He seems to have lost faith/command of his fastball which regularly topped out in the low to mid 90's when he was pitching well. It's not like the Sox system is brimming over with young pitching -- I predict Boone will be back in September, if not sooner.

Designated for assignment??? I don't like Boner either right now, but he was too good in the first half to just give up on. He's not getting through waivers and the first team that claims him, which is going to be fast, isn't going to have to give up anything decent to get him.

I hope this isn't true. At the very least he could be trade bait over the offseason.

Yes, I agree. I wonder if the verbiage is incorrect, I would find it odd they'd DFA Logan vs. just optioning him to Charlotte. But it clearly says they plan to DFA him today.

Of course, designated for assignment doesn't mean they'd outright release him, they can work out a trade for someone else's prospect(s) or a guy who has cleared waivers. Clearly the Sox are disappointed in Logan though.

Players on the 40-man roster right now who are definitely more useless than Boone Logan:

-Dewon Day
-Charlie Haeger
-Lucas Harrell
-Mike MacDougal
-Donny Lucy (why isn't he on the 60-day DL)
-Cole Armstrong
-Dewayne Wise

That's 7 guys by my count. *** would we be releasing him for? That's just stupid. Release one of the other guys or transfer Lucy to the 60-day DL.

I was riding a 25 game winning streak before going to the game last night. During those 25 games I did not see Boone Logan pitch once. The loss last night is on him, and on Ozzie for bringing him in. I know Carrasco had been pitching a lot of innings recently but he should have at least been in to face one more batter, if only because my win streak was in jeopardy.

In short, **** boone logan. I don't think he even deserves to have his name capitalized right now.
