Red Sox Resign C Doug Mirabelli

From the Boston Herald

According to sources, Mirabelli has agreed in principle a one-year deal from the team that will pay him in the range of a guaranteed $550,000 to serve as backup to Jason Varitek. The guaranteed portion of the deal is down from the $750,000 Mirabelli earned last season, but incentives allow the catcher to reach an approximate $1 million ceiling that he had last year.

No idea if the Red Sox tried any other catcher options but they have turned back to Doug Mirabelli for another year of backing up Varitek. I really thought this was the last year Doug Mirabelli would be around. It was the end of his contract and his hitting has hit a low. Defensively he isn’t what he was. Mirabelli is a bad catcher all around, all he’s good for is catching a knuckle ball.

I would have liked going after someone with some upside, but the catchers will stay the same and will get one year older. The Red Sox are going to be running into trouble soon with their catchers. Both are very old and there isn’t much out there as far as free agents or minor league help. Theo and the front office will have to figure it out. I’m stumped.
