The Red Sox designate Boof Bonser for assignment

Jun 18, 2010, 4:27 PM EST

The Red Sox designated pitcher Boof Bonser for assignment. Shocker, there. Bonser has spent most of the season on the DL, and the two occasions he has pitched he has been shelled, allowing four runs in two innings.

Bonser was a failed starter who had some promise when he was moved to the pen in 2008, posting a 55/16 K/BB ratio in 52
innings. But he had rotator cuff surgery in February 2009, missed all of last season and hasn’t been able to figure it out since then. If his career ends today, he will still be only second on the all-time Boof Scale, behind Boof from Teen Wolf.

Wait, he could win 5 Cy Young awards and he’d still be behind Boof from Teen Wolf.  She meant a lot to me back when I was 12.

    re: Teen Wolf, I couldn’t agree more.

    Bonser’s Boozers Fanclub will continue to booze on in honor of Boof.

    a Teen Wolf reference? Did I accidentally come to Bill Simmons’ page instead?
