The Red Sox claimed righthander Marcus McBeth off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds. McBeth was 1-1 with a 6.20 ERA in 24 relief appearances at Triple A Louisville this season. McBeth was assigned to Pawtucket and added to the 40-man roster. The Sox designated righthander Lincoln Holdzkom for assignment.

the thread is inconsequential but the title is magnificent. but lest we bring ourselves bad luck we should refer to him as the danish pitcher.

He's probably better than Holdzkom was.

True. I almost wish that "Hot Rod" Lincoln hadn't been returned from the Rule V.

I guess I was inspired by the Lars interview.
