I am pretty high on Sowers. I just don't know how much success he will have initially, although he has had no problems thus far in the minors.
On the Hansen subject. I think the Red Sox realize that the best closers actually begin their minor league careers as starters because they are able to work in a wide variety of situations and work on all of their pitches.
I do not think the Sox starting him means they are grooming him to start, and I think if they are going to make him a starter, it is a silly idea, as stated above by hybrid.
