The team did not make an official announcement, but it would appear that Wilkerson -- who hit [sic] .119 this spring, with 18 strikeouts in 42 AB -- is not being considered for a spot on the bench and the Red Sox decided to give him a few extra days notice to perhaps sign with another club.
Jeff Bailey and Chris Carter are the remaining as candidates for that spot. For both men, it would be a dream come true.
We have Bails and Carter, who are kind of fighting for the same spot -- they're already in the organization. We'll make a move from there.Bails??? Come on, Terry. It's Gumball or nothin'.
This is really the dark ages of nicknames, isn't it?
