That's crazy. IMO, the Sox actually held on to Thornton for too long, probably because they didn't have a reasonable replacement within their organization. Matt was a good reliever for several seasons, but he's at the end of his career now. He wasn't worth the money he was making, and it was past time to cut ties.
JB's attendance record:
2004: 14-5; 2005: 16-8; 2006: 19-10; 2007: 8-12; 2008: 15-7; 2009: 6-13; 2010: 12-11; 2011: 9-8; 2012: 11-7; 2013: 8-9; 2014: 6-8; Total: 124-98.
Next game: Sept. 27 vs. Kansas City
