Viva Brasil!

Fab Melo & Leandro Barbosa

O CELTICS BRASIL. I am down with this move. Celtics signed veteran guard Leandro Barbosa yesterday, who hails from Brazil, just like the coveted rookie from Syracuse Fab Melo. This is a good move, not only because Barbosa adds a veteran presence to the bench, as a 6th man of the year award winner, but he can help show the rookie Melo the ropes. I’m not talkin like just throwin Okajima in the bullpen to give Daisuke someone to talk shop with (or お店の話をする), Barbosa’s veteran status and shared heritage is perfect to help groom along young Melo. So if the C’s are tryin to keep the 7-footer long term, this is a good move. Game 1 is Tuesday, October 30th, against Ray Allen and the Miami Heat (what?).
