The Roy Oswalt experience in Texas has not gone well. Based on this, I suppose it’s gonna get worse:

 

Roy is probably thinking about his bulldozer right now, telling himself that his bulldozer always dealt with him fairly and let him knew where he stood.

Pawtucket has been the home of the Red Sox’ Triple-A affiliate since 1973. There have, over the years, been some threats that that might change, but they’ve amounted to nothing. Until now. Get read to welcome the Worcester Red Sox. From the Boston Globe:

[T]he Pawtucket Red Sox said Friday that they had signed a deal to move to Worcester, ending an era for the minor league affiliate in Rhode Island that dates back to 1973.

PawSox chairman Larry Lucchino said the team signed a letter of intent with the city to build a nearly $90 million, 10,000-seat stadium that would be open for baseball in 2021.

I just assumed “Worcester Red Sox.” The article says that Lucchino is considering the “Wooster WooSox” as a nickname. I’ll leave it to those of you with a vested interest in Red Sox minor leagues teams to weigh in on that.

And yes, the stadium will be paid for with tax dollars and other public funds, because of course it will be.
