The Red Sox are close to consummating a one-year deal to bring back backup catcher Doug Mirabelli for the 2008 season. With the backup catching (and overall catching) markets slim pickings this offseason, the Sox bring back the catcher who has been with the team since the 2001 season (other than a brief stint with the Padres, when he was traded away and traded back). Terms: 1yr/550,000. It really makes you wonder if any other catchers can handle the knuckleball? I also wonder how I beat Fenway to this :tongue:

In Boston we wonder what kind of pictures Doug has of Theo :tongue:

When Wakefield was left off the World Series roster everybody wondered why Doug made it.

Theo got killed in the trade with the Padres to get him back in 2006.

You'd have to think Mirabelli's career might be over the day that Wakefield hangs up his spikes.
