Sox owe me a finder’s fee
Like I wrote yesterday, I thought Jose Cruz Jr. would be the perfect fit for the Red Sox. And Sox GM Theo Epstein agreed. Boston acquired Cruz and cash considerations from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for Minor League infielder Kenny Perez and Minor League right-hander Kyle Bono on Saturday night.
A Gold Glove winner in 2003, Cruz gives the Sox another outfielder with Trot Nixon on the DL. And Cruz gives the Sox another Yankee killer.
