He does not handle pressure well at all.

He's been one of the best late inning relievers in baseball over the past 3-4 years. One bad outing (in a non save situation) doesn't change that.

He's pitched in some pretty pressure filled 8th innings for awhile now. And he has succeeded for the most part. I don't think that is fair.

Shades of Bobby Jenks there.

 

Jesus of Nazareth, Matt!

 

That's why you are most assuredly NOT the closer.

He's been one of the best setup men in the MLB for a few years now.

BS.

 

But do the Sox believe that?

17 innings into the RV era, I already feel he's more competent a manager than Ozzie ever was. And I don't even agree with every single decision he's made yet.

Gave him Hamilton and Beltre in the 8th inning of a tie game on the road, then left him in for Napoli with the bases loaded and 2 outs (of course, after he created the mess).

 

That's some confidence in him.

For me, I loved the pitch out in the likely running situation.

If they didn't, they wouldn't have given him the contract they gave him.
