The rumors of my Red Sox namesake are true. A sad day indeed. After the 2009 draft, my nephew’s dreams of playing for the Sox were a brief reality, and dreams he still keeps while playing college ball for Memphis. But my more frivolous hopes that Michael Thomas would rise through the ranks were thrown out with today’s trash.
For the acquisition of Salty, a worthwhile move, increasingly so it seems, Michael ended up as the player to be named later.I guess for some reliability behind the plate, which might be one small root of our pitching problems, I can take this one wound for the team.
