Boston is lucky to have four successful major sports teams over the last decade. A lot of that success is due to their respective owners and the financial and emotional support they provide to their teams. In the wake of Wyc Grousbeck's comments on Ray Allen, the guys on Sports Tonight talk about which owners love their teams the most.
The Red Sox officially announced the signing of first baseman Mitch Moreland Thursday. To make room for him on the 40-man roster, the team designated left-handed pitcher Williams Jerez for assignment.
Moreland has played his entire career with the Rangers, winning a Gold Glove at first base last season. He hit .233/.298/.422 with 22 homers and 60 RBI for the Rangers last season before becoming a free agent. He has a career batting average of .254, with a career-high 23 homers in both the 2013 and 2015 seasons.
A second-round pick of the Red Sox in the 2011 draft, Jerez started his professional career as an outfielder before being moved to pitcher.
