Last week Aaron ran down the Red Sox’ shortstop options. Among the possibilities? Signing free agent Marco Scutaro. That possibility is inching closer to reality, as the Boston Herald’s Michael Silverman is reporting that Boston is, in fact, sniffing around Scutaro.
Scutaro hits better than Alex Gonzalez, and for a team that lived and won a lot of games with Julio Lugo, he’s certainly good enough on defense. The only downside? If Boston gets him and Roy Halladay and wins the World Series, Blue Jays fans might commit mass suicide.
Wait, they’re Canadians and Canadians are sensible. If Boston gets him and Roy Halladay and wins the World Series Jays fans will simply start paying attention to the Leafs earlier next fall than they usually do.
