Our favorite failed draft pick has caught on with a new team!
The Red Sox have claimed J.D. Durbin off waivers from the Diamondbacks. Durbin has pitched exactly two thirds of an inning at the major league level this season, giving up seven(!) earned runs on seven hits against the Rockies, leaving him with a career Diamondbacks ERA of 94.50.
I highly encourage all of you to also check out Deadspin's coverage of this transaction, includes a mildly disturbing picture of The Real Deal dressed as a cooler and a link to his MySpace page.
