Sadly, it had to be done. We can't afford to let him try and figure out his problems while we drop in the standings.

Give the Wilkerson guy a shot at this point.

I agree, he should be the one. He's pitched well at every level after not being drafted. He deserves it.

Following allowing nine runs in 2 2/3 innings Monday night, the Red Sox sent Eduardo Rodriguez back to Triple-A. To fill the spot on the roster, the team has recalled right-hander Pat Light.

It will be Light’s second stint with the major league club this year as he made his major league debut April 26 against the Braves. Light is a starter-turned-reliever known for his fastball that can reach 100 mph. With the PawSox, Light has not surrendered a run in 10 appearances since May 21, allowing only six hits with 13 strikeouts in 12 innings during that span.

Overall, in 20 relief outings for the PawSox, Light has gone 5-for-5 in save opportunities while posting a 2.05 ERA and a .161 opponent batting average with 32 strikeouts in 26 1/3 innings.weei.com

Carl Willis implies Eduardo Rodriguez is still tipping pitches: "Hitters know what's coming." Focus at Triple-A will be breaking that habit.

Another 2-3 crappy games and the pitching coach gets the axe, JF up next after that. He's been brutal in-game, and how can an x pitching coach get so much bupkiss with this staff?

BTW, no thanks to Garza.
