Classic weirdo and talented reliever Beau Vaughan was shipped to Boston as the PTBNL for Wes Littleton. This happened quite a while ago but I am just now getting around to it.
Everyone knows by now that Vaughan was not your typical brain-dead jock clone. Of course, I didn't have to spend an entire summer working with him... I imagine schtick like that wears thin on a 12 hour bus ride. Almost like, say, Clay Buchholz and Hunter Jones playing guitar together.
Vaughan was an oldster in double-A but fit in pretty well in Pawtucket. So I'll miss him, I guess.
IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN YOU, EDGAR!!!!
In a related story, blonde prostitute Chris Smith is now a (minor league) Milwaukee Brewer. I hope he likes beer!
By the way, it was Zach Borowiak who retired. Not even close, Bud. I hear he wants back in, though. Fuck that kid.
