For those who didn't read it, apparently Francona is giving Miller some "rest" by putting him in the closer's role for a while since his closer usually pitches less than Miller or Shaw. It's not expected to last very long. Allen has moved into Miller's role in the meantime and says he has no problem with it. That's all ... odd but whatever works.

Now he realizes it?

I wonder if he's considered the obvious next step we would all want him to take ... abolish the closer role and just pick and choose your relievers one day at a time.
