Brian MacPherson spoke with Damon Amendolara about the Boston Red Sox, their bullpen and the team’s new additions.
The guys jumped right into John Lackey‘s tough outing against the Tampa Bay Rays. Should we be worried with this recent performance?
Should fans be attentive to the way Jonathan Papelbon starts off the season? If hey does struggle is it too early in Daniel Bard’s career for fans to want him to take over?
Still staying with bullpen talk, the guys discussed Daisuke Matsuzaka’s spring training performances. Is MacPherson optimistic or pessimistic about Dice-K’s success this season?
Moving on to the guys behind the plate, the guys discussed the catchers. How will the catching duties be split up between Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Jason Varitek?
Who will have the biggest impact on this team early in the season Carl Crawford or Adrian Gonzalez?
