"Peter Gammons is reporting that the Red Sox are close to signing outfielder Rocco Baldelli to be the team's fourth outfielder. Baldelli will be a guest at tomorrow night's Boston Baseball Writers Dinner, where he will receive the 2008 Tony Conigliaro Award. The deal is expected to be announced then. We're working on confirming this, and we'll let you know when it is confirmed." -Source: Boston Globe's Extra Bases
Very predictable move. As long as there is not any problem with him not playing every day, I like him off the bench. Though I still think the team needs some hitting depth better than last year's. Hopefully Theo figures out a way to address this issue.
