Rantings and ravings from an admitted fan (as in fanatic!) of the Boston Red Sox. Updated only occasionally, but with my take on recent developments in Red Sox Nation. Updated more frequently during the end of the regular season and playoffs (hopefully).

J.T. Snow

The Sox designated J.T. Snow for assignment yesterday, starting the process on his leaving the Red Sox.  Sad to say it, but he was simply an insurance policy that the Red Sox didn’t need (and that’s a good thing, right?).  They simply didn’t know how Kevin Youkilis was going to work out at first base, and I think it’s now safe to say that the Youkilis experiment is working a little bit. J  But Snow expected more at-bats, and he was classy about it but also made it clear that he did not sign up to spit and scratch himself on the bench.  I feel bad for the guy, but for the team this is great news. It means a guy they weren’t sure about (Youk) has proven that he is a fantastic everyday player, and in the big picture that is a very good thing.
