Craig Hansen called up

Postby Havok1517 » Tue Jun 06, 2006 6:35 pm

Looks like he'll be in the pen for a little bit.

Red Sox recalled RHP Craig Hansen from Triple-A Pawtucket.
The Red Sox needed a fresh arm and Hansen qualified. His stay almost certainly will be brief, as the Red Sox will likely add Jon Lester to the roster and maybe activate Mike Timlin this weekend. Jun. 6 - 6:11 pm et

Yes he was starting the last like 5 games, with mixed results. We all know he has big time talent. They have been stretching him out for a month and a half now and I think they are preparing themselves for an early hook from Pauley who is a mess. Then they get a chance to see him in a long relief spot tonight, with the outside chance of him and or Lester sticking in the rotation.

Well, other than Paps and Foulke, for the bullpen he certainly couldn't do any worse.

I sure wish they would get rid of Wells and go with...

Schilling
Beckett
Clement
Hansen
Lester

Wake in relief and Pap closing

Though, that may be awhile in the future. ;-7

I'd still keep Hansen in the pen . . .

I would to. I wouldn't be surprised if next year Hansen goes to the pen and Paps goes to the rotation.

This is what I thought the plan was all along. Paps will eventually, possibly as soon as next year, be a starter while Hansen will move into the closers role. I, too, would like to forget who David Wells was...

I wanna qualify what I'm about to say by prefacing it with the statement that I'm as big a Yankee fan, Red Sox hater as there is...

BUT

I've been following Papelbon since he was in the minors, and Hansen since he was with St. John's since it's about 15 minutes from my house... and if the Red Sox take Papelbon out of the closer's role next year they are absolutely insane. Have they not paid any attention to the biggest reason for Yankee success over the last decade?!?!

I love Hansen and I love Papelbon, I really do. But their best bet is to put them 1-2 in THE BULLPEN, not in their Rotation. Hansen in the 8th and Papelbon in the 9th is such a sexy proposition. They'd be out of their minds to tinker with it. A rotation next year of...

Schilling
Beckett
Wakefield
Clement
Lester

Is not bad when you couple it with the best bullpen in the majors and the likelihood that the Sox will add another pitcher to that rotation somewhere around the #3 spot moving everyone else down...

I wouldn't mess with it. Lights out closers and lights out setup men don't grow on trees and they're among the most important things in the game.

AT, I agree with you to an extent, but a lights out set-up man is much easier/cheaper to find than a stud starter. I think they'd be better suited grabbing one of the better FA set up men in the offseason and cutting loose on Wakefield or Clement and letting Hansen close.
