About time. According to the Boston Globe, the Red Sox and Bobby Jenks are trying to reach an agreement on a buyout of Jenks’s contract.
The Red Sox and Jenks signed a 2 year, $12 million contract during the 2010 offseason and they’ve come to regret the deal mightily. In 2011, Jenks had an ERA of 6.32 and a WHIP of 2.23 in 15.2 innings of work before getting injured.
During Spring Training this year, Jenks was arrested for driving under the influence and fleeing the scene. He’s been a thief during his time with the Red Sox, and it’s good that we could be rid of him once and for all.
