I'm from the Boston area so here is what insight I have on the guy ...I've seen all of his starts and he was basically mediocre in all of his others but tonights start against the oh so mighty Royals heh. He's a pretty decent prospect in the system but Clay Bucholdz and Jon Lester are generally regarded as superior pitchers. Couple that with the fact that he most likely will not crack the rotation as a full time starter I wouldn't get too excited about the guy yet. For some reason I think Francona loves Tavarez and is content with him for now, hence the holdup on Lesters reemergence into the rotation.
