Red SoxTender Contract Offer To Aptly-Named 'Abad'

(Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY)The Red Sox off-season just gets 'curiouser and curiouser'. Today, we learn that Dave Dombrowski will tender a contract offer to abysmal left-handed reliever so appropriately-named Fernando Abad. After being acquired in mid-season, Abad went 0-2 with a 6.39 ERA. He had an horrific WHIP of 1.658. So, this is the best Dombrowski can do on the lefty-reliever market? Again, he's a cheap alternative—playing into parsimonious John Henry's pattern.
