I am dearly hoping that Darnell McDonald has a new “buddy” on the recently DFA’d list by Boston in Justin Germano REAL SOON.. Why they decided to call him up because he had a opt out date is mind boggling for a career MiLB player with a couple hundred career lousy MLB IP to his credit, but lo n behold they did..
Roster decisions this year by Cherrington and his motley crue have been hard to figure out with some of the… oddities… They have kept on the MLB roster and not.. Like Lin hardly around at all. The master plan seems to be amiss.
