Boston Red Sox: Three Reasons Why a New Bullpen is Needed

Smush HigginsAnalyst IJuly 7, 2008

Manny Delcarmen, Craig Hansen, Mike Timlin:


Every morning when I wake up to check the Red Sox game on the bottom line and see that they lose, I pound on the bed. After game winning pitcher is declared, like Mussina or Wang, and I see Delcarmen, Hansen, or Timlin, I chuck my pillow across the length of the room.

I believe that everyone in the Boston Red Sox bullpen should leave because:

3. All of them are terrible, Delcarmen: 0-2, 4.46; Hansen: 1-3, 5.84; Timlin: 3-3 6.75.

2. It's just time for a change!

1. They lose very key games, such as ones against the Rays and Yankees.
