I understand Peter Gammons claims in his ESPN Insider column that the Red Sox have approached small market teams about Matt Clement. Unless the Sox are willing to pay most of his salary like they did with Renteria, this makes little sense to me. Why small market teams?
If the Sox are willing to pay for him to pitch for the Reds, he might be worth a shot. He is out right now with shoulder weakness but doctors can't find anything physical. I think he is neither equipped to start anymore (high pitch counts) nor to pitch in the Boston spotlight. But...I think he could close for the Reds.
I've always felt the guy could be a lights out reliever. He misses bats and induces grounders.
Highlifeman21, can you please check that Peter Gammnon's ESPN Insider story for me?
