Red Sox juggling in the inflield?

It's 10-2 Sox after 6.

This is no time to be complacent, though we might want to appreciate our aging / adjusting former ace, so figure it out Valentine / McClure. He's at an even 100 pitches and I vote let him pitch the 7th.


--------------------
The young Bill James rather famously wrote that he could not find any evidence that certain types of players could consistently hit better in the clutch – he still has not found that evidence. But unlike his younger self, he will not dismiss the idea of clutch hitting. He has been a consultant for the Red Sox for more than a decade, and he has watched David Ortiz deliver so many big hits in so many big moments, and he finds himself unwilling to deny that Big Papi does have an ability in those situations others don’t have.

I'm satisfied that bringing in our best reliever for multiple innings qualifies as "not complacent."

Without looking at the numbers, it does not surprise me that Atchison has the best ones. Every team needs someone like Scott Atchison.
