Just saw that Boof Bonser was DFA by Minnesota. Coming off surgery and missed all of 2009, interested on the cheap? If the price was something akin to Andruw Jones' deal I'd say do it, but he'll probably get more somewhere, lots of teams need bullpen help.

comparing him to Linebrink, he would be a marginal step up, but about 5 years younger and much, much cheaper. Full time out of the bullpen and he might be ok, again not the greatest bullpen addition, but who is out there and at what cost. In 2008 he made $450K, hell sign to a minor league deal and see what happens.

The Sox were about the only team that couldn't hit him. Where have we heard that before?

I lost a bet to my Twins fan friend a couple years ago, and named my pet rabbit "Boof" as a result. If he was on the Sox, I wouldn't mind so much.

No he would be a gargantuan step down.

He IS on the All-Time Stupid Name team. That should be worth something.

As far as his pitching goes, pass.

He actually changed his name legally from John to Boof.

The only Boof I remember was the gal from 'Teen Wolf'.

I wonder why somebody would do that? Takes all kinds, I guess.

His parents must be so proud of him. LOL

Well, 'Boof' was picked up by the Red Sox:

He boofed another one. He offers nothing but a player to fill a roster spot. There are many others out there with some talent and a real name to go with it.

Hope the Red Sox have a good time with. (I hope that doesn't come back to bite me later this year)

His parents must be so proud of him. LOLI'm sure they're fine with it; the reason he changed it is because that's all anyone, including his parents, had ever called him.
