We've been waiting weeks for any sort of real Red Sox news. I guess you can call signing Dan Kolb and Dan Miceli real news.
Kolb would get $650,000 if he's added to the major league roster and $78,000 in the minors. Miceli would make $650,000 in the big leagues and $84,000 in the minors.
Both pitchers can earn performance bonuses as well.
One word: depth. That's all this is. I would actually be really surprised if Kolb, at least, is still a Red Sox come May. I don't think he'll want to stick around in Pawtucket.
