“ESPN.com’s Buster Olney is reporting that (Andrew) Bailey has been traded to the Red Sox in a deal that involves right fielder Josh Reddick. Bailey, eligible for arbitration for the first time after making only $465,000 this year, would be under the Red Sox control for the next three seasons.”
Finally, the Red Sox are making some moves. It has been pretty quiet around Fenway since Tito and Theo left town. Red Sox Nation has been chomping at the bit waiting for Cherington to add some serious pitching to this ball club. The Bailey move means Bard can become a starter and fill out our rotation. No one is sure how well Bard will do as a starter, but experts agree on one thing: he can’t be worse than Lackey.
