Wily Mo takes his place. Also, Javy Lopez sent down to AAA.

Brace yourselves. Bafiarocks is bound to weigh in soon with a breathless post about getting Willie back.

Yeah, but count me as one of those who thought Willie was an important part of this team last year. In fact, if we didn't have Cintron, I'd hope KW would look into reacquiring him. But I'm not real clear on how that whole thing works: If you pick up someone who's DFA, can you send them down to AAA, or does it depend on length of service? Having Willie on standby, so to speak, seems like a cheap insurance policy if conditions are right.

The only way you could send him down to AAA is if he clears waivers and you sign him to a minor league contract.

Which seems unlikely. Oh, well.

Boston used Willie mainly as a pinch runner (.156, 0 HR, 7 RBI and 17 runs) and when he was used as an outfielder he looked shaky. Bosox are kind of forced to use Wily Mo to show they did get value for Bronson Arroyo in a deal that looks worse and worse now that Wakefield maybe headed for the DL.

You must be talking about a different Willie Harris.

Im not sure about that. Royals got Grudzialanek at 2B. Plus they have Sanders, Gathright, and DeJesus in the OF. I hope he gets more PT somewhere though.

um... if it's any consolation to you, this is rotoworld's comment on Willie being DFA'd:

Red Sox designated outfielder Willie Harris for assignment.
A future Minnesota Twin? Harris got 45 at-bats in 47 games for the Red Sox and hit .156/.250/.200. He's already said he's not interested in returning to Triple-A Pawtucket.

If he's with the Twins, you could see him way more than with Boston.

Willie is an *******, but PHP is right that he'd be more valuable to this team than Gload, who never plays. At least Willie can pinch run. Plus, his questionable defense in CF >>> Mackowiak's horrible defense in CF. Finally, with less playing time in CF, Mack could easily take on all of Gload's extremely limited duties (PH and backup RF / 1B).
