It’s late January. No New York or Boston teams are playing any games worth paying attention to. There’s no baseball. It’s (sort of) cold. The Road Rules/Real World Duel is over. What the hell is there to talk about (besides Murray Chass, of course)? Because of this dearth of activity, we figured this was a perfect time to feature someone we may never hear from or see again, give a little-known ballplayer some serious internet time: the Red Sox’ final pick (#1499 overall – think about that!) in the 2006 amateur
lottery draft. As a tease, some career highlights:
- 2005 – Made 15 appearances, all in relief
- 2005 – got save vs. San Jose State (4/3), getting the final two outs, including a strikeout
- 2004 – gave up no runs in 4.2 innings vs. Winthrop (3/15)
- favorites include Taco Bell, the movie, "The Big Lebowski," and actor Denzel Washington
So without further adue please welcome, from the University of Hawaii, Mr. Darrell Fisherbaugh.
