Joel Pineiro to be Designated for Assignment

New, comments

Terry Francona just said in his post-game press conference that the Red Sox will designate Joel Pineiro for assignment tomorrow to make room for Jon Lester to start on Monday.

I think this is a good move. The Sox have better options in Pawtucket if they need another reliever at any point. Pineiro had his days, but for the most part he was a bad relief pitcher. I'm hoping the Sox can work a trade.
