    It seems the Red Sox have to move him up soon - to Pawtucket, with maybe a taste of the majors later this season (the way Boston is burning through pitchers because of doubleheaders and extra-inning games, Britton could be of use sooner than expected).

    If Ranaudo keeps dominating in Double-A, Boston may be forced to move him up to Triple-A, even though the Pawtucket rotation is a crowded group.
