08:13 AM ET 03.16 | The Orioles traded minor league infielder Mike Flacco, the younger brother of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe, to the Boston Red Sox on Friday for cash considerations or a player to be named later. Flacco, 26, played mainly at Single-A Frederick last year, hitting .218 in 103 games. He also played four games at Double-A Bowie and was expected to compete there for the starting first base job along with Aaron Baker and Tyler Townsend.

A thread for a player who it seems will never even get a sniff of the show? Must be a slow day.

Is this one of those 'big name' acquisitions the Sox like to make.

It reminds me of when the Sox signed Giambi. Unfortunately it was Jeremy.

Dude... 26 and hitting .218 in Single A ball?

Maybe he can get a job carrying his brothers bags.

It is amazing to me that a MLB team has carried him this long at that level and with no signs of advancing at his age.
