    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: If Andrew Bailey misses extended time, who should be the Sox closer? : Doubt they would do it. Aceves is already pissed off, dont need to add Bard to the list. Not to mention, they passed over Aceves in favor of Bard, then tell him they're putting Bard back in the pen over him, to add insult to injury.  As cowards mentioned, with the April schedule, they may be able to get away with a 4 man rotation with a few spot starts from Aceves, until Cook is stretched out. Can never have too much pitching. Never.

    IF Aceves sees being the closer as a promotion (and I should hope he would), then he should be given the job, along with assurance that if he is stellar there that even when Bailey gets back he (Aceves) will get the lion's share of save opportunities.  Otherwise, I predict very bad things from Aceves.  We are going to see the pitcher the Yankees let go (they let him go as much for his attitude as his back issues).

    I like Padilla as closer. He always seems to pitch well in his first inning of work. He's got fire, an attitude, and a heck of an eephus pitch.

    I say our offense needs to kick it up a notch and take the pressure off of our very thin pitching staff.

    I guess they will go with Melancon since Aceves can pitch multiple innings. Note: Last year , Papelbon had three blown saves, the third one coming on the final day. How likely is it that we can expect only three blown saves this year?  Might have three before April is over.  Papelbon will be sorely missed.
