    John Farrell said on Sirius XM that Tazawa will close because he likes Uehara in the eighth inning.

    Moving Doubront to the bullpen helps, as does letting Webster start another game.  Last night Dempster was warming up to go in, probably in the 12th.  Mortensen needs a break.

    Allen Webster will start Wednesday night. Felix Doubront will be available out of the bullpen starting tonight.

     Felix Doubront:""I'm doing my best to get it," he said. "I don't have my 95 and 96, but one day it's going to explode, and I'm going to be the same as last year. I don't worry about that. There's nothing wrong with my arm."

    Doubront:"If I keep throwing my 90, 91, 92, if I keep throwing that, that's going to be a big change because now I have to locate," he said. "The location has to be better with more offspeed pitches. That's in my mind. When you don't have that that power in your fastball, you have to locate your fastball and throw another pitch to get outs."

    Stephen Drew has driven in the winning run in each of BOS's last 4 wins, 1st Red Sox to do that since Ortiz in '06

    What Dempster has learned the first time through the order is that he can throw the ball in the opposite batter's box and still get swings.

    Time for the bats to WAKE UP!

    I've always been a huge Ells fan, but it's time he started showing that he can still be "an impact player!"

    Is he, or isn't he?  Is he a FAST slap hitting CF with an arm worse than my sisters, or is he a complete player, worthy of top tier $$$$.

    He better figure it out fast or the market for his services is going to dry up fast!

    With the contract $$$$ Boras continues to talk up, one would think this guy could actually CARRY A TEAM.  So far, he's been a slightly above average hitter this year, who can steal bases & play a decent CF.  Time to step up Ells!

    I should not be more excited to see Nava at the plate than Ells, considering the player he is said to be!
