Felger and Massarotti opened the day talking about the Boston Red Sox and the acquisition of Houston Astros closer Mark Melancon.

The Sox traded infielder Jed Lowrie and right-handed pitcher Kyle Weiland for right-handed closer Mark Melancon of the Houston Astros. Is the Melancon the answer for the Sox closer role?

Why would the Astros give up Melancon for nothing? How serviceable is he, especially come the late innings of a game?

Are the Red Sox still looking for more bullpen help? Are they, or will they, still be looking for a big name closer?

Will the exit of old players and entrance of new ones help change the personality of the Sox?
