I just hope Embree's straight low 90s fastball stays straight and dead center over the plate. He has no offspeed stuff, so he needs that thing up higher, and at the corners.


Some scouts claim that he's gotten better lately and is just a change of scenery away. Time will tell, but I know the Sox aren't happy that the Yankees ended up with him as opposed to anyone else.


oh yah. i hate the yankees signing washed-up meatball pitchers. makes me reminisce for felix heredia, who i miss terribly... whenever there was a fire last year, heredia would come in with the gasoline.

That was Embree's role in Boston this year. }:-)

I mean, doesn't this piss you off?

OK, maybe that's gratuitous. Sorry.

I'd have a hard time if the tables were turned, though.

Hmmm....

Red Sox designated LHP Alan Embree for assignment.

Embree's velocity has been down from the mid-90s to the low-90s, but it's not the first time that's happened. He's still a better 11th or 12th pitcher than many teams have. The Red Sox will try to trade him, even if they have to pay a hefty chunk of his salary. They don't want him ending up on the Yankees.


The Mets are interested in reliever Alan Embree, who was recently designated for assignment by the Red Sox.
The Mets are the one New York team the Sox wouldn't mind seeing him go to. Embree ''just needs a change of scenery,'' according to one scout


But I guess the Sox wanted the Yankees to have him or didn't care if he became a Yankee right mat? ;-7

I'm still laughing at seeing this guy walking onto the field today. I didn't expect it at all when he walked on out there in a 2 run game, but maybe all he needed was a change of scenery from Boston. He sure didn't show it today, though it may have just been 1st game Yankee jitters.

It's Alan freakin' Embree we're talking about here. This is a guy with one pitch that has lost noticeable velocity, has never been particularly tough on left handers, and has been pitching well below replacement level for this entire season. The Red Sox didn't care if he went to the Spankees, and apparently nobody else did either. He was released and cleared waivers, which shows you how much interest there was in him.
