There is much joy in Boston as Pitiless Theo apparently decided to take pity on the Sox and return to work. In other Red Sox news, Kirk Cameron Bronson Arroyo signed an extension with the Sox well below his agent's expectations because he like playing in Boston. Scott Boras has no doubt now crossed Arroyo off his list of desirable clients. While there is much to admire in Bronson's attitude, one has to wonder if the Sox will show him the same loyalty, given that he's, like, seventh on their depth chart of starting pitchers.
