    turns out the ligts are too big for him. cant handle the workload if you may. 3 runs in a thirs when its all up to him is enough. rather see morales,dempster, craigy and even pedro in those high stress periods. heck, work doesnt make the postseason roster.



    Whether he makes the post season roster or not is not all that important...the kid's a starter who has pitched well in that role and gives the Sox plenty of options heading into 2014.

    Last night he struggled with his comand having just took a week off...the kid can pitch.

    Workman is a starter--he was given a chance to get his feet wet out of the pen, he has really struggled lately. He needs a winter to prepare for ST and perhaps fight his way back on the team as a starter. I like Britton over Workman out of the pen; we really haven't seen Britton as a starter for the Sox.

    I dont want this to come off negative, I saw Workman this year Pitch Double AA, the day before call up. He got hit really hard. Now a few months later all the way to the bigs. Big Jump.
    The thing is, he has always been a starter, tough for a kid to earn while you learn, in the bigs. You'll have many ups and downs.

    Looking at his stats from starter to reliever, is pretty drastic. 2.45 as starter, to 7.15 as reliever.

    1 HR in 18 innings as Starter, 4 HRS in 22 innings as reliever. Hope the Sox are doing there homework, because now there is no tomorrow. Very high pressure time for a kid.

    Perepective is everything.  

    Workman wasn't even really a stud in the minors, got called up out of necessity, and has performed admirably in a role he wasn't even cut out to play at a level he wasn't even supposed to be ready for.

    The fact that he has scuffled because he is burnt out says more about how crucial he has been to the bullpen than it does his ability.

    He wasn't ticketed to be in the big leagues this season.

    Obviously he still needs a little seasoning in the minors.

    Give him a break he's still in his early stages of his career.

    Just like this board to jump on a guy who wasn't even expected to be here.

    Give this fella the winter off, then a productive spring training, then we'll see---I thnk he'll be just fine next year and beyond. But, right no, given my druthers, I'd rather see Doubrant get that spot on the post season roster. After a 10-day-off period, he looked relaxed and effective his last appearance.

    Re: WORKMAN aint WORKING out!

    You really cannot jusdge the kid fairly in a role he was unfamiliar with and considering he hadnt pitched in a week....especially because as a reilever you have to be available which means you dont throw scheduled sides......it is no wonder he would have command issues. As for the Post Season roster....Farrell seems to have faith in him.....Personally in the first 5 game round....I would only go with 6 guys in the Pen...since you could always use your game 2/3 starters out of the Pen in a pinch in a Game 5....Uehara, Tazawa, Breslow and Dempster are locks....it would seem after that you need to add a Lefty and a Righty....the lefty is a choice between Thorton and Morales....personally I think Morales is getting better every time he throws velocity wise...and I dont trust Thorton....there really isnt another righty option besides Workman unless you go with De La Rosa, Wenster or Wright....who are more unproven then Workman.....you could add both Morales and Thorton since Breslow is more than just a Lefty specialist.....whatever the decision, I trust in Farrell and Nieves to make the right choice for the club
