The Red Sox bench contributed sparingly in the ALCS; Bobby Kielty drove in two runs in five at bats, and Doug Mirabelli handled the knuckler well. Coco Crisp will likely join the group and be a speedy pinch-runner and late-inning defensive replacement. The Rockies can get big things out of several bench players, including Jeff Baker (two hits in three playoff ABs) and Seth Smith (three hits and runs in the playoffs).
