OTM Open Thread 11/30: It is Tuesday

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ Counting the days... Happy Tuesday. Still nothing to report. Presumably Chaim Bloom and his team are getting prepped for the Winter Meetings. Free agents are beginning to sign in a slow trickle that should turn into a bit of a rush. The question is: will the Red Sox be involved? They have a lot of holes but also a lot of money coming off the books to spend just to get back to where they were the last few years. Happy birthday Mariano Rivera!

Let’s Meet The New Guys: Joely Rodriguez

He’s a free agent reliever signed for just over $1 million, so don’t expect too much. But there are reasons to believe he can be better next year. Who Is This Guy And Where Did He Come From? He’s Joely Rodriguez, which you know if you’d bothered to read the headline. He’s spent parts of five seasons in the Majors and bounced around a lot, from the Phillies, to the Rangers, to the Yankees, and finally to the Mets last season — and that was all following a grinding, eight-year climb through the Pirates minor league system. The Red Sox signed him as a free agent,...
