    Alfredo Aceves - The New Bob Stanley

    Bob Stanley was one of the great handymen for the Red Sox.  He often relieved multiple innings, did some spot starts, and closed.  Kind of reminds me of the way Aceves is filling in where needed.  His value to the team in terms of versatility goes way beyond his stats, which are nothing to sneeze at either.  He is proving to be a valuable player to the Red Sox and a great offseason find.

    waste of space as usual, can't believe I fell for it again - to think I had hope you would start a thread worth reading.

    Unlike Stanley he has a very good 94+ fastball.  Stanley lived by his very heavy sinker and remains one of the great "swingmen" in Sox history, game 6 of the '86 series not withstanding!

    Alfredo was a huge loss for the Yanks!  Cashman must be regretting it!

    I'm fine with Wake starting, and Aceves coming in when Wake falters.   Aceves is a tough cookie so far, I don't see any of the head case stuff ... yet ...

    How would Aceves do with a rake and a beach ball though?

    jarret, the first time Aceves came into a game for the sox, i thought, oh no, this is going to be a disaster because the bill of his cap was a veritable waterfall and he hadn't faced two batters.  Nervous?  What the heck is that?  But, that has all changed now.  Where would this club be without Alfredo?  All that ridiculous sweat belies what a cool customer he has been.

    You must have a personal beef with Los huh?  I mean, I think the comparison is interesting.  Sure Stanley was a different pitcher, but in terms of the role he played on those clubs, I think Los has an interesting take.  Why so dismissive?

    I got to believe Aceves soaked his hat in water before taking the mound, due to the heat. Not even Youk sweats THAT much.

    This coming from one who - won't read more than one limited paragraph...


    Who need words large enough to

    sustain  his  attention.


    Who rarely comprehends what he does manage to read.

    Having a 3-inning reliever in this day and age is invaluable.
    Let's hope he is continued to be deployed wisely.

    One of Stanley's greatest attributes was his longevity.

    Yeah I get the comparison but Stanley was the Red Sox career leader in saves before Paps came along, set an American league record for relief innings, made an all star team twice and twice was in the top ten in the Cy Young Balloting.

    Not trying to give you a hard time, the comparison is somewhat apt.  Just saying Aceves has a ways to go before I would compare him to Stanley.

    Aceves has had a great start this year, and he is 17-2 with a 3.23 ERA career. He's never had over 84 IP in the bigs. Stanley started 30 games one year. Stanley had less than 84 IP only twice his whole 13 season career (79.1 & 82.1).

    Point taken by both Snakeoil and Moonie that the comparison is hyperbollic and Aceves has hardly earned Bob Stanley career service stripes.  Still, those two recent performances - the extra innings affair in Oakland, and the damage control in the Bronx - were both big moments so far in the still young 2011 season and may portend other big moments going forward.
