Today in OTM History

2010: Jonathan Papelbon Placed on Bereavement list; Boof Bonser Called Up; That’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time.

2011: MLB 2011 Draft: Markus Betts Selected at #172 by Boston Red Sox; What a steal.

2012: On Bunting and Bobby Valentine; It’s 2012...it had to be a Bobby V story.

2014: Minor Lines: Rafael Devers continues to rake; Some things never change.

Today in Red Sox Birthdays

Wish a happy birthday to very memorable Red Sox like Roberto Petagine, Jeff Pierce, and Heathcliff Slocumb (ok, we remember him). Mostly for the guys featured here on April 27, 2002.
