with the way wakefield's been pitching, I'd be very surprised if Arroyo's the one that goes to the pen wen schilling gets back.
Not a chance. Wakefield never pitches in relief unless it's the playoffs (and we saw how that turned out one year).
Why would anyone ever want a knuckler in relief? The last thing you want in late innings is a guy who, because of the type of pitch he throws, puts a lot of men on base.
Francona has no clue what he's going to do when schilling comes back. I honestly see a trade happening before either Arroyo or Miller are relegated to relief.
