VIVA FABIO CASTRO!
When it looked like Clay Buchholz was going to go on the DL, the Red Sox summoned Fabio Castro from Pawtucket to help out the bullpen.
But when it was clear they needed more infield depth with Pedroia going down, Theo pulled off a deal with the A's to bring in utility man Eric Patterson and Castro was designated for assignment without appearing in a game.
How could you do it, Tito? How could you NOT bring in Fabio Castro?
You have the ability to have the P.A. announcer say "Now pitching... FABIO CASTRO!"
And you passed that up? For what? For Manny DelCarmen to get another appearance?
I hope nobody claims him... I have no idea if he sucks or not. I just want to hear the words "Fabio Castro gets the out."
