Most Predictable Move of the Week:

Is anyone surprised that the first person to swoop in and grab Alfredo Aceves off the waiver wire would be Frank? This is after all the same guy who actually drafted Doug Mirabelli back in 2005:

The addition of Aceves brings to the total number of Red Sox on Los Cuñados to 4 (all of them pitchers) which seems low for Frank, but it should be noted that his roster also contains ex-Sox players Adrian Beltre, Coco Crisp and Justin Masterson as well as ex-Sox prospect Anibal Sanchez. Frank, Jason Bay is still available if you're looking for outfield depth.
