Duchscherer was an All-Star in 2008, but he has a history of back, hip and arm troubles and it’s doubtful that he’ll be able to give a team 180 innings as a starter next season. He fits right into Boston’s usual strategy of acquiring rehabbing starters for depth and hoping for the best. He couldn’t work out a whole lot worse than John Smoltz and Brad Penny did last season.

    We are all potential Beanbags. It’s just a question of into which one of the countless alternative universes we are born. There are as many possibilities as their are integers of Pi. When your number comes up even, you’re going to find yourself in one of those funny uniforms of theirs.

    He was an original Red Sox (never pitched for the big club) then traded to Texas for Doug Mirabelli
