Three Things need to be pointed out for posterity:
(1) An excellent diary posting at Over the Monster discussing Lenny's career so far:
His pride wounded but undaunted still, DiNardo was whiffing more than a batter an inning in the AFL, posting a 3.20 ERA for Peoria, and trying to make a case to be invited to spring training for a bullpen spot in 2007. However, the solid lefty (190 pounds) was claimed off waivers by that Computerbrain Billy Beane on Feburary 14th, 2007. It was a dark day in Red Sox Nation history.
(2) Chris from Westboro's thoughtful post on the beginning and end of this blog (this is SO meta). Thanks, dude:
2004 - In a bar in Washington DC, I sat among friends drinking pitchers of beer and watched the Red Sox open the bullpen to reveal a new face. A young guy who actually ran from the bullpen instead of doing that awkward trot/run/walk (or that slow Jabba-like slither that Wells did). And upon seeing this fresh face, a friend of mine became convinced upon hearing the name Lenny, that this kid was going to save the Red Sox...[more]
(3) Go-RedSox.com (the Boston.com-sponsored Japanese language Dirt Dogs site...did BDD ever think this day would come?) links to the Lenny DiNardo Blog! Look for these characters: ギターを弾いていた. Here's the whole thing:
Be well, and thanks for reading...and who knows...I still place money that Lenny ends up back in Beantown a la Kapler and Merloni (and Burks and Eckersley and Clemens (???)).
