Boston made two low key moves yesterday that could end up being very scary if they work out. Rocco Baldelli was signed to a one year deal and so was John Smoltz. Baldelli has been covered here in the past. He`s a great gamble for them to take with very little risk. If he works out he could be an impact player fo them. The only positive I can take from this is that its a one year deal.
John Smoltz is another scary guy. It seems like they`re going to throw a few different injury risks to the back end of their rotation with Penny, Smoltz, and Wakefield. Smoltz got a solid contract but if he works out for them he`s going to kill the Yanks. Then again, theirs a good chance that he`d only be part of the five man rotation if somebody else gets hurt.
Both of these could be busts but they also have the potential to be just as big as Sabathia and Teixeira. Well, maybe not quite, but you get the idea.
