— A Timely Look at Transactions as They Happen
Friday, January 20, 2006
Red Sox - Signed Wee Willie
Boston Red Sox - Signed IF Willie Harris to a minor-league contract.
Harris should’ve taken the equally non-guaranteed Rockie deal. Always go to Denver!
He’s not a great or even a particularly good player, but I actually think I’d rather have him at short overall than Alex Cora and if the Red Sox aren’t going to use Adam Stern as the stopgap centerfielder, Harris is better there instead of the crap remaining. Harris will take a walk and spray some singles, but that’s pretty much it. Dimino’s probably heavier than Willie.
Looking at the remaining free agents and their ZiPS projections, there are the best unemployed players available at each position, assuming I didn’t miss a minor league transaction here and there. It’s an ugly bunch.

Oops, Spilborgh was re-signed. And I really have no idea for a couple. J.J. Davis, for instance, had enough minor league time to be a FA after he was outrighted, but I never heard if he accepted or refused the assignment.
