In most cases, semi-drastic times call for semi-drastic measures. When it comes to the cities of Boston and New York, semi-drastic times call for drastic measures.
With John Lackey and Daisuke Matsuzaka hurting, the Boston Red Sox are hoping to get the one last ounce of talent RHP Kevin Millwood has left out of him. The Red Sox signed the 36-year-old to a minor-league deal on Thursday night.
Millwood, who opted out of his minor-league deal with the New York Yankees last week, pitched for the Baltimore Orioles last season and had a 5.10 ERA in 190 innings.
I don’t think Millwood can help the Red Sox at all. According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, via Twitter, a GM told him that Millwood was “terrible” for the Yankees in Triple-A.
I don’t see how that is going to change in Boston.
