A Novel Use Of Javier Lopez
After letting up 5 runs in 1/3 of an inning, raising his ERA to 9.39, Javier Lopez finally found something he can do right.
He played the outfield.
I've been calling for the Red Sox to let Lopez go since November.
With Hunter Jones pitching well, they can have a second lefty.
And with Michael Bowden so talented and useful sitting in Pawtucket, it is almost criminal to use a roster space for Javier Lopez.
He got his ring and his memories.
Now it's waivers time.
