Is he standing, through one week of spring training?

it look like the Sox will carry seven relievers to begin the year


+5 starters....wait that's only 12 pitchers. Is the sky falling in?

I really hope, not because I'm a Red Sox fan, but for the greater good of MLB that the Red Sox, "let's cobble together a 7 man pen with whatever we have left over/can find on the cheap" succeeds spectacularly. Just to prove that you don't need more then 7 guys in your pen and that on any given year you'll strike lightening in a bottle with certain guys and that overall relievers are massively overrated.

Seriously, this. The Yankees spending infinity dollars on their bullpen will certainly work but it's so ####### boring.
