Kelly Shoppach Traded to the Mets

Kelly Shoppach, the Sox backup ¬†catcher and rightful heir to Jason Varitek’s facial hair, has cleared waivers and been dealt to the New York Mets for the always exciting “player to be named later.” Shoppach has been as productive as a backup catcher could be [.250, 5 HR, .789 OPS], but his days were numbered once Ryan Lavarnway came up the Lou Merloni Expressway from Pawtucket a couple weeks ago.

Congrats to Shoppach on being traded away from the Sox for the second time in his career, and to the Sox, because dealing a backup catcher with only 158 plate appearances is just what you need to pull an underachieving team out of an 11.5 game hole. I’d say this like rearranging deck furniture on the Titanic, but the Titanic actually went somewhere before it ended in disaster.
