Sunday Notes: Tazawa’s Role, Perkins’ Bullets, Butler, Buck, Baseball Americana

Junichi Tazawa is satisfied with his current role. Sort of. The 28-year-old set-up specialist would rather start or close, but he’s comforted by the knowledge that outs in the seventh and eighth innings can be every bit as valuable as outs in the ninth. And he gets a lot of them. Tazawa made 71 appearances […]

Prospect Picks Reviewed

Before the season began, I tried to identify five prospects in the Red Sox system that would have breakout years in 2014.

Andrew Miller Revisited: Should Red Sox Pursue Reunion With Reliever?

The Boston Red Sox’s focus should be on finding the next Andrew Miller. Miller has been trending upward for three seasons. The summit of his incline will be a nice payday in free agency this winter.
