    Aceves

    Is Aceves the best pick up ever? He's been such a great addition to the team. The only time I saw him struggling was when the sweat was dripping down off his cap in front of his eyes. I still think there should be something they can do about that in 2011. I don't get it.

    I can't count how many games I'm thinking "bring Aceves in". I didn't even know who this guy was when he was with the Yankees. I don't know what his record is, but I think he's saved a lot of games for us. He's going to be awesome in the post-season.

    Tito is in the process of over-using him. Miller should have pitched longer today.

    I agree. I thought some of Miller's "balls" were "strikes" as well. I do think, though, it's not bad to keep it a positive in his case, and in that circumstance.

    At 82 IP this is by far a career high for him at this point in a season as a relief pitcher.  I hope he stays healthy for the stretch run and the postseason because he has arguably been the MVP of the pitching staff this season!

    Too bad Aceves sat in AAA during a chunk of the terrible start, so Wakefield could sit on the bench.

    It sounds like the Yankees recently posted the umpire's dividend residuals, and just in the nick of time.

    Is every thread about Wakefield? Talk about an agenda.

    Aceves has been great. Too bad we don't have two of him, so one could start. He did a good job in that role also.

    He's a double whammy. We have him and the yanks don't. He could be doing this for them, if they didn't give up on him after his injury. He's a low cost addition also.

    Aceves also has 8 IP at AAA for a total of 90.  In 2009 he had 84 IP for NYY plus 23 at AAA for a total of 107.

    I would expect that they set an innings max for him this year and that Tito is on target with it.

    Re: Aceves

    Miller's last start was three weeks ago, so it's hard to be sure how long to keep him in.  On top of that, you can never be sure whether he still has command of his pitches.  So, while it's possible he could have finished the 6th, Terry was also trying to win the game.  By using Aceves for the final 3.2 innings, he kept Papelbon, Bard, Wheeler, Albers, and Morales rested for the next two games. 

    Aceves is having a good year, no doubt--all the more amazing because he is the proverbial long reliever, hardly a distinguished role, but Aceves has made it so.

    Re: Aceves

    Definitely the second-best pickup this year behind the obvious. He has been outstanding. (Need to get the guy a drip-free cap, but that's another matter). Other than Paps and Bard, he's the guy out of the pen I most want in there.

    As for Tito should have gone with Miller longer, I disagree. It was his first extensive work since July 31, and he had struggled with the first two hitters. Better to get him out while he's still feeling good about himself rather than risk a two-run jack to make it a 5-3 game.

    Francona has to start thinking about spreading out the relief innings of Aceves and all others in the bullpen.     It's still only August and another whole month of September to go before the playoffs.    Overuse of the bullpen can come back to bite.

    Kim is not Pike. The contingent of Babe, Yazzer, and Mikey just want everyone to think so. Red Sox fans could make similar accusations that the above trio are also one poster but they don't play that game.

    Aceves and Miller - put a feather into Theo's hat. Funny to hear the concerns about overuse of the bullpen. Always something to worry about for the armchair managers instead of trying to enjoy the moment.

    Why couldn't they have made him a starting pitcher and found additions to the bullpen?

    What??  You are Pike & Kim and Pawsoxphil.  In regard to overuse of bullpens/relief pitchers......its not a bogus concern and you shouldn't judge someone who writes that because you and your alter egos think of that as a "concern troll" right away.  Its a real issue and something to keep an eye on but you're too worried about being the police of the forum than actual baseball stuff.  As for Aceves he is an effective pitcher, I always liked him when he was with the Yanks, he was a good pickup for the Sox.

    It is harder to find a guy who can come out of the bullpen and shut it down for two innings than a starter ... Aceves is worth much more in the pen.

    Your probably right.  I always thought he would be a great starting pitcher, but he is probably more valuable out of the bullpen.  He has been a great addition to the  Red Sox this year.

    I wouldn't be to concerned about over working Aceves, last night was the first time in August that he pitched more than an inning and a third, his total innings for the month of August to date is only 9 (24 since the AS break)...pre break he totaled 58 innings with four starts accounting for 21 of his 58.

    He's made 39 appearances pitched 82.1 innings...if we subtract the starts and innings he pitched in May when he started that gives him 35 relief apperances with 61 innings pitched or about 2 innings per appearance...which is about the norm for a middle reliver in the Sox pen...to me the critical number is how many appearances a reliever makes and how often do they get up in the pen...Aceves has only pitched back to back days 3 times all year...

    I wan't calling Diamondtalk a concern troll. His post history never showed that to be true. Yo are putting words into my mouth. There is nothing wrong with expressing a concern once in awhile but when someone does it on 99 posts out of 100, that raises a red flag.  One needs to ascertain what is continual, perpetual, and chronic behavior before you label or characterize anyone. Bosox1941 is completely predictable and the forum has him labeled. This isn't rocket science.
