”Sox should overpitch this guy! What one more batter is going to kill him?!??”

Yesh, I'd rather not overpitch the shutdown closer as opposed to the not-good middle reliever. The Sox were and would continue to be just fine without Jace Fry. I don't think that would be the case without Colome

Make sense now?

Nice to see the constant negativity, fighting and b****ijg in the game thread of a 6-2 big win vs your divisional foe. 

I swear some fans are happier being miserable than winning.

Good way to overuse your shutdown closer is to mismanage all the other relievers your manager trusts

Sox yesterday got 7IPs from their starter, 1.1 from their back from injury reliever and .2 to finish it from their non closer. It’s a great day for bullpen management moving forward. 
 

And you are still whining about it.

and even Foster should be ready to go again tonight if needed.  The Sox should have everyone available except MAYBE Fry because of precautionary reasons.

Yeah, letting Fry go another 2 outs would've definitely overused Colome. GMAB

I'm not whining. I just didn't think using Foster unnecessarily was smart

My friend sometimes it's best to know that you don't know everything about baseball instead of smugly sticking to your argument.. Fry has been pretty much a lefty specialist even when baseball made it harder to be that. Before  yesterday he had pitched in 13 games for a total of 12.1 innings so he usually goes less than 1 inning per outing. He had also walked 6 guys in those 12.1 innings. This was his 1st appearance since coming off the injured list and he is our only left handed reliever that can be trusted unless you think Gio Gonzales or Detwiler are better options for late innings.

He is extremely important  especially if Bummer doesn't come back. He had already pitched more than he averaged when healthy. Another 2 outs could've been another 20 pitches if he walked another guy. You got a good job from him. You don't risk re-injury to his back by over extending him when he is so important moving forward. The big picture is way more important than another 2 outs with a 4 run lead. Bullpen pitchers have roles and he had already pitched beyond his role in that situation.
