How Are The Former Red Sox Players Doing So Far?

I was curious as to how some former Red Sox players were performing with their new teams, so I did some research. According to Juan C. Gonzalez of the Sun Sentinel, former farmhand Hanley Ramirez has been named the starting shortstop for the Florida Marlins, as well as batting leadoff. I hope it lasts for Ramirez as the Marlins have his counterpart, Robert Andino, waiting in the wings. Gordon Edes of the Boston Globe has reported that former Sox first baseman/outfielder Brian Daubach failed to win a spot on the St. Louis Cardinals roster, being sent down despite hitting over .300 during the spring. Bronson Arroyo was greeted rather rudely in his Reds spring premier, giving up 6 runs and 7 hits in five innings. While Arroyo said he “wasn't pleased with the results” he felt strong in the first couple of innings. We wish Bronson the very best of luck with his new team. Derek Lowe has been lights out during the spring, putting a smile of the face of new Dodger manager, Grady Little. After his first season with LA was filled with controversy, Lowe seems to have his head screwed on straight. Well, for the time being, anyway. His numbers have been impressive going 2-1/3.71/17IP/14H. Let’s see if he stays the course. Edgar Renteria is batting .333 with 3 HR’s and 8 RBI. I’ve read this his fielding has been decent as well. Former third baseman Billy Ballgame Mueller is hitting .382 with the Dodgers this spring, connecting for 3 HR’s and 10 RBI. Mike Myers is 1-1 with a 2.71 ERA with the Yankee’s. Kevin Millar is hitting .289 with 1 HR and 7 RBI with the Orioles. Johnny Damon is hitting .438 in very limited AB’s with the Yankee’s since returning from the WBC. Tim Wakefield’s personal catcher for the past 4 seasons, Doug Mirabelli, continues to have a hot spring with the San Diego Padres, hitting .423 with 3 HR’s and 9 RBI. His teammate, Mark Bellhorn, hasn’t been as hot, hitting at a .182 clip with 1HR and 4 RBI. Another Padre, Alan Embree, is struggling as well, with a record of 0-2, ERA of 6.75, giving up 13 hits in 6+ innings. Pedro Martinez was surrounded by media and scouts alike for his first spring training appearance. He’s only thrown 3 innings thus far. Ball hog Douglas Mientkiewic is the hottest of the hottest, off to a .487 clip with 1HR and 14 RBI. Considering how anemic the Sox offense has been this spring, some of these guys look pretty good. As the infamous sports idiot for WBZ in Boston would say, “Why can’t we get players like this?”
