The Red Sox announced today that they've added Brian Butterfield to their staff. Butterfield will be third-base coach under John Farrell; the same role he had in Toronto the last two years under Farrell, and one preceding him.
Butterfield hails from Bangor, Maine, which makes him A-OK in my book, considering Maine is the greatest state in the union.
He's also a tremendous Patriots fan, according to the beat guys on Twitter. Apparently, he likes Gronk.
Welcome aboard, Brian. We look forward to not knowing who you are except the three times a season when you send somebody home and they get thrown out, and then we throw things and curse your name.
