Delcarmen Gets Safeco Shot

The editors of FenwayNation have never been too kind to Manny Delcarmen. It was one of those situations where we were rooting so hard for a local kid to make good, that his shortcomings were magnified. All of us can recall the flashes of brilliance early in his Red Sox career. It just never came together here.

Which is why the signing of a minor-league deal with Seattle is good news for him. Safeco Field is renowned for being a pitcher's park and if he regains some movement on his mid- to upper-nineties fastball, he could be good again. We are rooting for him.
