Castillo helps Sox take three of four

The Daily Jimy questionning. The Sox won and that is great. Question 1: Why rest Everett in favor of Darren Lewis(his 2 hit day is not the point)? Tampa Bay is the next opponent so why not have your best outfielder play against your chief rival. Everett, who had 3 hits the day before, did not seem to need a rest. Question 2: Why pull Frank Castillo when he only threw 65 pitches? Is that his limit? What if he reached 65 in the 4th inning? He had let up just 2 hits through 6 innings and was not fatigued.

Just because the Red Sox won doesn’t mean Jimy did the right things. Baffling.
