     Reported by Boston Sports.net; Valentine stated, initially, the closer role will be shared by Melancon and Aceves.

    Maybe sign Arthur Rhodes for a few weeks to see how things pan out. I know he is 42, but may give some veteran leadership and help the youngers guys on how to prepare for closing out games.

    How about Bowden?  He closed for Pawtucket last year and did a great job.

    I think you use Aceves at the most crucial point in the game, which is usually not the ninth inning.

    do you really want to put your eggs in that basket? he hasn't proven he can shut down major league batters quite yet. I certainly think he has the stuff to ONE DAY close but I don't think that day is today. not when you have guys you KNOW can get you the saves you need. Melanchon is our guy (or padilla)

    I think the role is over-rated.  Most pitchers more often than not can get three outs in an inning without giving up a run.  How many times will the Sox enter the ninth inning with a one run lead?   The moneyball model is to take your hardest thrower, make him a closer, inflate his worth and then trade him.  Meanwhile, use your best reliever at the toughest moment in the game.  For us, that's Aceves, and he can come in at a tough moment, and pitch the remainder of the game, if necessary.

    Even with a save today it doesn't feel right having Aceves as the closer... though we do not have other options. Hope it works out.  *Tampa does not have a closer either right now.
