Should We Be Worried? Red Sox Lose Again 15-7 to Marlins – Fenway Park Fort Myers FL 3/24/11

How Will Theo Epstein Reconstruct Shaky Bullpen? Fenway Park 11/10/10

How will Theo Epstein effectively and efficiently reconstruct the Red Sox bullpen for the 2011 MLB schedule?  It is not an easy question to answer.  After having the 2nd best bullpen ERA in 2009 (3.80), the Red Sox bullpen collapsed in 2010.  Hideki Okajima was awful, Manny Delcarmen and Ramon Ramirez pitched themselves out of [...]
