With Veritek on the shelf for at least a few weeks (knee surgery) the Sox are in some serious trouble behind the plate. Mirabelli is now the starter, which isn't too bad, but the guy they just called up sounds awful. From espn.com:
"Mirabelli started Tuesday and Ken Huckaby was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket to take Varitek's roster spot. Huckaby was hitting .207 with two homers and 16 RBI in 68 games with Pawtucket."
OK, so the kid from AAA with the terrible stats still has better stats than LaRue. LOL. But maybe we can trick the Red Sox into thinking they need a veteran that talks to himself before striking out. And we know he would breeze through waivers since he is paid about 10x his worth.
