Sox Add Big Free Agent

Some exciting news for Red Sox fans in a season that's been anything but. They've signed Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo. A 7 year 72 million dollar deal that is a record number for a free agent amateur, though to be fair if he is what people expect he'll be a bargain. He'll likely be put in center field, which could very well spell the end of the Jackie Bradley era really before it even fully begins. Perhaps most exciting is that, according to sources, Castillo will likely join the team this season, though there will be some paperwork to fill out first.

Originally a sports radio major, Aaron co-hosted a weekly sports radio show on WHSN called This Week in Sports while also doing play by play and color commentary of Husson Eagle sporting events. He also spent a semester as the stations sports director. After his sophomore year he realized he had run out of radio classes to take, so he began taking TV courses while also working at Stephen King’s sports station WZON. Aaron graduated from NESCom in May of 2008 with a degree in communications, and was named the top broadcast journalist of his class. Since joining ABC-7 and Fox Bangor he has won multiple Maine Association of Broadcasting Awards.

In his free time Aaron likes, surprise, to watch sports and play sports. From mountain climbing to basketball, there are very few sports Aaron doesn’t enjoy.
