That will teach him not to make an error

Tony Graffanino, who made a crucial error in the Division Series against the White Sox while playing for Boston, was put on waivers today and picked up by his former team, the Kansas City Royals.

The Royals 2006 season can best be summed by this sentence in the linked article by Dick Kaegel of

Graffanino's arrival will impact the battle for a backup infield role between Esteban German and Joe McEwing.

At least they didn't try to get rid of him in the middle of the Series, like Charlie Finley tried to do with Mike Andrews.

This is a bad move by the Red Sox. Error aside, Graffanino hit well for the Sox down the stretch and would have been a useful player--as a pinch-hitter and insurance behind Loretta. I'm surprised they didn't trade him rather than place him on waivers.

I liked Boston's moves to acquire Pena and Choi, but don't like this move at all.
