Sox Add Billy Buck & Get Mock(ed)

The Red Sox keep adding pitchers, and they added a guy with a familiar name: Billy Buckner.

No, he's not related to the guy you're thinking of.

Buckner's numbers are nothing to get excited about. He had an ERA over 6.00 for the Colorado Rockies AAA club last season, and his career ERA is 6.25 in over 138 career MLB innings.

The Sox also added Garrett Mock, whose numbers ain't great either. He last pitched for the Nationals AAA team last year, and his ERA was 6.28 in 12 starts. Both pitchers were assigned to the minor league camp.

The Red Sox will also begin the task of turning the page on 2011, as they will face Northeastern University this afternoon, and Boston College tonight in Ft. Myers, as they officially open JetBlue Park.

And for those of you outside New England, tomorrow's game against the Minnesota Twins will be broadcast on tape-delay on the MLB Network at 8 PM.
