Darnell McDonald Signs with Yankees
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?
