Lyle Overbay, We Hardly Knew Ye

Boston cut ties with Lyle Overbay today.  After trading for Mike Carp, there was not much room for Overbay.  He immediately found work with the Yankees though, who seem intent on signing every single over-the-hill position player they can find to act as stopgaps until their regulars come back from injuries.


  1. Hi, just happened upon your blog today, and I must say I am very impressed....so much I had forgotten about, like Carlos Baerga being a Sox player. Can't believe there are not more comments/followers. I am also a transplanted Red Sox fan (Tennessee) and baseball card collector, and I look forward to reading more of your work. Keep it up!

  2. Thanks for the comment! I love the obscure players on the Red Sox as I am sure you will see.
