You guessed it. I’m here to tug on your pant leg again about Kason Gabbard. Another stellar three frames of work Sunday versus the Orioles’ mostly “A” unit allowing one stinking hit that bounded 20 feet over Mike Lowell’s head (there’s enough concrete on the infield of that Fort Lauderdale diamond to make it an excellent mob burial ground), two Ks, no walks. The cunning lefty’s ERA dips to 2.70 in Grapefruit League play, and yet we’re still hearing that Gabbard is ticketed for Pawtucket in two weeks. Yeah, yeah we know the reasons. Too many horses in the rotation already. More off-days on the early season sked don’t necessitate taking six starters north. Yada, yada. Now listen up Red Sox Nation. Dog Cast is not without influence over a certain member of the front office. If you think as we do that Kason deserves to be (need we remind you again about his performance last September?) in a Boston uni come April, give us a shout. E-mail us at gabbard @ penguin pods dot com and we’ll make sure that Mike Hazen, the Red Sox Director of Player Development hears your plea. We can do quite nicely without elder statesman Timmy every fifth day, don’t ya think?
