Bah! Humbug! So Much For 'Holaday' Cheer, Red Sox!
Well, it's better that it happened today than on Christmas Eve, but the Red Sox have officially cut their ties with way-way-back-up catcher Bryan Holaday. The team did not tender a contract offer to the backstop—who now is free to ply his version of the 'tools of ignorance' to any of the other 29 MLB teams. In his wicked brief tenure in Carmine Hose, the 29-year-old hit .212 in 34 plate appearances. Alas, there will not be a Holaday Bobble Head Night in 2017.
