Joel Pineiro to be Red Sox closer?

The Boston Herald is reporting that the Red Sox have signed Joel Pineiro (pending physical) to a one-year deal for $4M to be their closer next season.  The contract includes an option year that vests based upon finished games, which is where the closer speculation comes from.

Can this really be true?  Or is Boston just spending $4M to try and bring down the asking prices for Gonzalez or Cordero?  Or perhaps this is just an elaborate April Fool's joke?

What do people think?  Is there any way Joel actually serves as Boston's closer next year?  Successfully?
