A good move? Dunno. He's a great guy, and he loves Boston. Which is nice. Just not so sure he's that good of a pitcher any more. He sure seemed shaky on many occasions in the latter months of the '06 campaign. And he seemed to have an awful hard time striking people out, especially when pitching from the stretch. But he's a "veteran presence" who can offer "leadership" to the young dudes in the pen. And maybe he's not cooked. I suppose he could be serviceable as a bridge, but I certainly hope his days as high-leverage set-up man are over. And that's a lot of money for a middle reliever.
