The Red Sox traded Phil Seibel to the Angels for Brendon Donnelly. Donnelly is the option for closer, but will most likely be a fallback if they are unable to acquire someone. He went 6-0 with a 3.94 ERA and 53 K. Seibel, 27, had a great season in all the levels of the Red Sox minor league system. He pitched in 80 innings with 1.24 ERA. The Red Sox also signed J.C. Romero to a one year deal. Romero, 30, was 1-2 with a 6.70 ERA in 65 appearances for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in 2006. He held left handed batters to a .211 average.
