Now Official: Jose Mijares and Scott Cousins get MiLB Contracts and Invites to Spring Training
Long have we known that Jose Mijares was on his way to Boston, but now, I guess, it’s finally official.

Mijares will get to watch another ring ceremony if he cracks the Opening Day roster, which… would you be excited to watch a ring ceremony if just about everybody but you is receiving a Champions ring? I know just being on a 25-man roster should be good enough, but that’s got to be a little awkward. Speaking of a name that always makes things a little bit awkward:
Cousins will be on his third different major league organization in three seasons, going from the Marlins, to the Angels last year where he appeared in seven games and had five plate appearances for the big league club, and now the Boston Red Sox. Entering his age 29 season, you figure if he’s not doing much now, the chances may not really be there for him later. As cruel as it may be, I know there are plenty of Giants fans (possibly some people in the organization, too) that don’t mind his lack of Major League success. Certainly a name the vast majority of Giants fans will never forget.
