The Boston Red Sox continue to be the (laughing stock)...er, talk of the Annual Winter Meetings by announcing a trade for the venerable Boof Bonser...Say what?

Bonser, who missed the entire 2008 season due to right shoulder surgery, has a career record of 18-25 with a 5.12 ERA. The 28-year-old right-hander has 96 career MLB appearances with 60 of them being starts.

In his last full season with the Twins in 2008, Bonser went 3-7 with a 5.93 ERA, striking out 97 and walking 36 in 47 games (12 starts).

Born John Paul Bonser, he legally changed his name to Boof after the 2001 season. ...Say what?

Since the end of the season, the Red Sox have added the likes of Jeremy Hermida, Tug Hulett, Marco Scutaro, and Ramon A. Ramirez to the roster, while losing Alex Gonzalez, Takashi Saito, and Billy Wagner to free-agency. 

With a trade looming which would send Mike Lowell to the Texas Rangers in exchange for minor league catcher, Max Ramirez and Jason Bay shopping the free-agent market, Red Sox Nation is starting to show concern.

Yesterday, the New York Yankees re-signed veteran left-hander Andy Petitte, while trading for All-star center-fielder Curtis Granderson. Epstein has apparently countered with trades that would bring Ramirez and Bonser to the Hub....Say what?

One has to hope that Epstein has some other tricks up his sleeve.
