Double Vision

Today the Red Sox claimed righty reliever, Ramon Ramirez (right) off waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays. There is an interesting twist to this however, the Red Sox already have a right-handed reliever named Ramon Ramirez. Therefore I am calling the new Ramon Ramirez, Ramon Ramirez Jr. and the old one, Ramon Ramirez Sr. Ramon Ramirez Jr. was acquired by the Rays after the seasons end after going 0-0 with a 3.65 ERA in 11 games with the Cincinatti Reds. The Red Sox also claimed lefty Fabio Castro who pitched in Toronto's AA and AAA systems in '09. Castro last pitched in the majors in '07, when he went 0-0 with a 6.00 ERA as he probably needs a little bit of seasoning in the minor leagues before he comes back to the bigs. I think this is crazy though, two Ramon Ramirezes on the Red Sox, are you kidding?

  1. This is going to be VERY confusing in the bullpen! Will be interesting to see how junior works out.
