Darnell McDonald Signs with Yankees

 Hopefully everyone has had time to digest the insane amount of grilled whatever they had yesterday (and time to dry off if you went to see the fireworks in Boston), so we can get back to some good old fashioned blogging. 

The Red Sox were swept yesterday by the Oakland A's, who are still a game under .500 while the Sox move to just two games over.  But the more shocking news of the day?  Darnell McDonald, Red Sox back-up outfielder who was kicked around between Boston and Triple-A Pawtucket, was designated for assignment.  But the team he went to - seriously, man?

Blessed?  You're going to get even less playing time over there with Dewayne Wise heating up and Brett Gardner on the way back from injury, very similar to the Red Sox situation right now, and why they let him go.

With Jacoby Ellsbury rehabbing in Double-A Portland, and call-ups Ryan Kalish and Daniel Nava out-performing McDonald, his departure was no surprise.  But the team he went to - seriously, man?

Well this will make that miserable show "Red Sox Small Talk" even worse without his daughter, Jiana, to ask the tough questions...
