Looks like Doug Mirabelli will be back with the Sox next year. Everybody knocks Mirabelli as the Official Catcher of Tim Wakefiled. Yes it is true, he would be out of MLB if not for Wakefield… but Doug and his wife Kristen bring a great community presence to Boston. This PR is an intangible for the Sox. His leadership and experience will also go a long way to the growing crop of rookie pitchers the Sox have on the way up.
On a more somber note. Rest in peace Buddy LeRoux. For all the turmoil surrounding his tenure, his legacy was great. A true entreprenuer and success story.
