What is so interesting about it ?
He'll be 26 y.o. (not a kid) and is still in a learning curve. The only thing interesting to me is why Theo keeps obtaining unfinished products that are forced on the 40 man roster.
Thanks!! That was a good read!!! I'm hoping a change of scenery is beneficial for both Bowden & Byrd!! :o)
They trashed Theo because of the current team he left them.
And surprisingly-the Bo Sox supposedly have less pitching in their farm system than the Cubs.
And we all know how the Cubs minor league system is, pitching-wise.
Why is a below average relief pitcher forced on to the 40 man roster a good thing ?
All you need to know is we're paying all of Byrd's salary ....lol (not)
It's not like we're trading for a guy that the RedSox wanted to keep. They were DFAing him.
So far, that has been Theo's "type" of move ----DFAs, Rule V risk, other team's leftovers, etc. etc.
Lotsa Red Sox fans are happy to see Bowden go, Some actually think they got the better of the Byrd deal.
I went on the BoSox site and I asked why they would trade for Byrd the way he is now.
One fan posted," Look , we know Byrd is garbage now, but we got him cheap and if you think Byrd looks bad hitting, wait til you see how Bowden looks pitching."
Apparently other BoSox fans agree.
