Red Sox release single task catcher

My father once said to me, "Find something you're good at in life, and then make a career out of that."

Actually, he never said anything like that. But if had given out career advice to me, it might have sounded like that. In reality, our talks about careers tended to be things like "Don't be late on your first day" or "You get paid to stay home on Columbus Day?"

But I digress.

The Red Sox released Tim Wakefield's personal catcher, Doug Mirabelli, today. Kevin Cash has apparently figured out how to catch a knuckleball.

Some team should sign Mirabelli to a minor league deal and stash him at AAA somewhere. Then, when Cash can't catch the knuckler, that team can then hold Mirabelli ransom to the Red Sox and they'll overpay to get the guy back. Just like they did last time.

Maybe this time they'll give up Buchholz, who would look very handsome in my favorite team's uniform.

Anybody knows how to catch a knuckleball. Wait until it stops rolling and pick it up. Duh.

In his first go-round with the Red Sox Mirabelli also provided as much offense as you could ask for from your second catcher. After his emergency acquisition and police escort, not so much.
