So Boston and NY continue to scape the bottom of the barrel to
"improve" their crappy pitching, but we're overrated? Right.

Theo still looking in the dumpster

The Red Sox have signed right-handed pitcher Ricky Bottalico and assigned him to Pawtucket, the pitcher's agent confirmed today.

The Brewers designated Bottalico for assignment July 27. In his 40 games for Milwaukee, he was 2-2 with a 4.54 ERA but had problems in his last eight appearances with a 10.13 ERA.

In his 11-year career, Bottalico has an ERA of 3.99 with a record of 33-42. He started his career with the Phillies in 1994 and also pitched for St. Louis, Kansas City, Arizona and the Mets before being signed by the Brewers this season.

Who knows, maybe Theo can convince Mike Jackson to come out of retirement.:D:

you wouldn't believe who the Red Sox resigned and is now at Gulf Coast

"El Guapo"

http://soxprospects.com/players/garces-rich.htm

Scouting Report: Former Red Sox reliever has been out of American baseball since 2002. In his heyday, "El Guapo" threw a low-90s fastball, in 2-seam and 4-seam varieties. Pitched well in the Venezuelan Winter League in 2005.

"Astacio, a 21-year-old righty, is 7-11 with a 4.33 ERA in 38 career games in the Boston system, spending much of his time in the rookie Gulf Coast League."

Sounds like the kind of garbage anyone would get in return for Remlinger to me.

I'd say it's more that he gets rid of bad players and, thankfully, gets plenty of bad players back in return. They have a roster full of bad players.

I agree that Astacio isn't much of a prospect, but how come KW couldn't get anything for Shingo?

I agree, how did Remlinger get even a mid-level prospect and Shingo gets not even a bum A guy??? Boggles the mind!

This wasn't the welcome back to New England that Mike Remlinger had planned when he showed up in the Red Sox clubhouse yesterday afternoon after being traded from the Cubs for minor league righthander Olivo Astacio.
In fact, even before the fourth and final batter he faced in Boston's 8-7 win last night, the Plymouth native was being booed by the 35,308 in attendance. But he took it all in stride.

''When I grew up here, I figure I booed enough guys that I've got some coming to me," Remlinger said. ''I'm confident I won't pitch that way again."

Remlinger came on to start the seventh inning and protect Matt Clement's 7-2 lead but got no outs. By the time the inning was over, he and Chad Bradford had coughed up the five-run lead, and the Sox had to go to extras to beat Texas.
