My thought is that I kinda hope he gets claimed on waivers and goes to a team that will give him a legit shot, and he could still thrive as a middle innings guy elsewhere.
He could also pass through waivers and be relegated to Pawtucket for the remainder of the season to be the back-up to the back-up to whomever the Sox pick up off the street because they don't have any faith in Bowden.
Why do the Sox "need" two lefty relievers? Is that a rule?
When one of them can't even get lefties out, he makes no sense to be on the roster. The arm they throw with doesn't mean a thing when they aren't good.
