Heyman On Gresh & Zo: ‘Bailey Is The Closer’
Jon Heyman joined Gresh and Zo on Tuesday to talk some baseball. The guys hit on the current closer situation for the Red Sox, Mike Napoli’s red hot start and Robinson Cano’s link to the Biogenesis clinic in Miami.
With the strong 13-6 start to the season is it time to start re-evaluating this Red Sox team? Could they now be the favorite team in the AL East or is it too soon to start thinking that way?
Mike Napoli’s bat has been working hard for the Sox leading the team and the majors with 25 RBI and he’s only six short of Manny Ramirez’ club record for the most in April. Where would the Sox be if they didn’t have the production of Napoli?
On the other end of the spectrum, Stephen Drew isn’t having much luck at the plate. How much of a leash do the Red Sox give him?
Plus, has Red Sox closer Joel Hanrahan lost his job to Andrew Bailey?
