Happy Saturday! We’ve made it to another weekend. The Red Sox weren’t involved in Friday’s big rush of signings but Jackie Bradley Jr. is still out there so it could happen. The Bruins and Celtics are both off tonight so it will be a quiet day in Boston sports. You can wish a happy birthday one of the most famous players to wear the Sox: Babe Ruth! Was there a curse or just bad management for 86 years? Either way, we’re all glad the Sox aren’t a punching bag anymore. On this day in 2008 the Sox took care of a lot business: Signed OF Bobby Kielty to a Minor League contract with an invitation to Spring Training; Invited RHP Michael Bowden, RHP Lee Gronkiewicz, LHP Hunter Jones, RHP Dan Kolb, RHP Justin Masterson, LHP Jon Switzer, LHP Michael Tejera, C Kevin Cash, INF Jeff Bailey, INF Keith Ginter, INF Tony Granadillo, INF Jed Lowrie, INF Joe Thurston and INF Gil Velazquez. Some had roles - memorable ones - with the Sox and others just went along with their lives. Talk about what you want and be good to one another.
