Red Sox - Signed Seanez

Boston Red Sox - Signed P Rudy Seanez to a 1-year contract.

Seanez is pretty much the same pitcher he was 15 years ago when he was a prospect - throws really hard, goes through stretches where he can’t find the plate, blows out his arm every other year.  Good Rudy will be a contributor to the Red Sox bullpen in 2006 but the Red Sox have to factor his extensive injury history into their plans (as they did with Chad Fox in the past).

I like this. Not only does it add depth in an experienced arm, but the inevitable injury means there'll soon be a spot in the pen for one of the young arms. I believe you'd call that double plus good.

i'm sure he'll get hurt in may and pitch like crap until the middle of june when they finally dl him.

It's funny, I was saying the exact opposite of him in Sox Therapy.

Apart from the above, I'm on board with ya, Dan. However, Seanez had no idea of what he was doing 15 years ago - now he's a pitcher as well as a thrower. Here's his #s in '91:

Lvl Team      W-L   ERA  G   IP    H   R HR BB  SO
AA  Cantn-Akr 4-2  2.58 25  38.1  17  12  2 30  73
AAA ColoSpr   0-0  7.27 16  17.1  17  14  2 22  19
Maj Cleveland 0-0 16.20  5   5.0  10  12  2  7   7

Then, he threw a skotch harder, but his curve was considered iffy and he didn't have a change yet. And, of course, he couldn't throw strikes (though - and correct me if I'm wrong, doesn't he normally control his offspeed stuff better than his fastball?)

It really is amazing that he set his career-high in innings last year with 60.3. He's had one more over 50 and one more over 40.

We already saw this guy. He stunk. He's a mop up guy.
