Well, all of the hubbub about Lastings is for not. He was designated for assignment today to make room for a reliever. It doesn't say much for his career that he got sent down for a reliever. The Sox came north with 11 pitchers, so maybe this was to be expected.
Through six games, had one hit, a double. Giving him a solid 250/250/500 line. That's an elite defensive outifleder with a 750 OPS, and upside. Maybe we should take a look.
Just like LaRoche, I wish him luck. In reality, that kid is toast. So long, and thanks for the fish.
