Sox sign Dan Kolb, Dan Miceli

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.

The World Series champion Boston Red Sox added insurance for their bullpen Tuesday, agreeing to minor league contracts with right-handers Dan Kolb and Dan Miceli.

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.
