    Sox call up Joey Gathright

    From WEEI.com:

    According to a tweet from MLB Network and NESN analyst Peter Gammons, the Red Sox will add Joey Gathright to their major league roster.

    "From Independent ball to Boston, welcome back Joey Gathright," Gammons tweeted.

    Gathright was acquired from the independent league Yuma Scorpions on Aug. 31 and assigned to Triple-A Pawtucket. Gathright was 3-for-8 with a walk and a steal in four games for the PawSox before the playoffs. The 30-year-old last played in the majors in 2009, when he finished the year with the Sox, for whom he served primarily as a pinch-running option and defensive replacement. In parts of six big league seasons, Gathright is a career .263 hitter with a .327 OBP, .303 slugging mark, .630 OPS and 80 steals in 109 attempts.

    He should put us over the top. Another cheap high upside signing by Theo. Another guy who cannot hit but can run. Theo you have to get on first base before you can run.

    Is the 40 man roster now complete? Will they have an extra laundry person also?

    Good move. It just means one more dumb ballplayer like Aviles and DMac can get picked off in a key situation.
