The Boston Globe had a quick chat with Amalie Benjamin, the entire transcript is here.
On Papelbon’s availability tonight:
I think that Papelbon’s availability is definitely in question tonight. He has thrown four innings in the last three days, a heavy workload for him.
On Pedroia’s slump:
He was very frustrated last night, putting the entire loss on his own shoulders, given his inability to get a hit. He easily could break out of this slump tonight (obviously), but overall I wouldn’t be too concerned with Pedroia.
On the potential game five matchup:
I don’t have a lot of faith in the Daisuke-Santana matchup favoring the Sox a second time.
In the “For What Its Worth” Department, Colin Cowherd thinks the Sox close it out tonight.
I really thought there’d be more ‘breaking’ news & opinion at this hour, but that’s all I could dig up. Use the comments to keep the community up to date if I missed anything!
