Yesterday the Red Sox scored 2 runs. For the first time in three games, that was not enough to win. Because the A’s are not the Twins.
Today, Doubront returns from injury (?), and takes the spot of the thus-far-very-effective Workman (whose 6-game suspension was finally upheld). He takes on Brad Mills, whose MLB career thus far has been less than stellar, but whose recent AAA stats are pretty great. Doubront has been very good for long stretches (and provided some extremely good relief efforts in the Sox’ October run last year), but has never had a sustained full-length season of success. Hopefully he’s back on track and they can send De La Rosa down for more seasoning, but we’ll see!
