You might want to get used to this. After all, Jon Lester may be wearing the dreaded pinstripes in another few months. Anyway, word is that The Bronx Embalmers have acquired former Boston lefty Chris Capuano from the Rockies for "cash considerations". What makes this even worse is that Capuano is a native of West Springfield, Massachusetts. In his brief stint with The Carmine Hose, Capuano pitched 31.2 innings, posting an ERA of 4.55. He did have flashes of effectiveness at times, but Andrew Miller was ultimately viewed as the more effective lefty out of the 'pen. We're sure flags will be at half-mast at Capuano's alma mater—Springfield's Our Lady of Hope Cathedral High School.
