Gregerson is on an 18+ inning scoreless streak. Still think that Thayer would come in for the next save [probably not until Friday though]
*On a personal note, I am now a Frank Francisco owner:
Javier Lopez retired all four batters he faced Friday to earn his fourth save versus the Braves.
Now this is different. In fact, he faced as many batters tonight as he did total in his first three saves. Lopez entered the night with a .436 average against versus righties, so he's not going to getting save chances like this with any frequency; his remaining saves figure to be of the one- and two-out variety. Things lined up great for him tonight, though; the only right-handed he had to face was switch-hitter Chipper Jones.
Red Sox suspended RHP Alfredo Aceves three games for conduct detrimental to the team.
Aceves apparently got into a heated exchange with Boston manager Bobby Valentine after Friday night's game against the Royals, in which Andrew Bailey was given his first save opportunity of the season and converted. Aceves will begin serving the three-game punishment on Saturday night. He has a 4.60 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP and 25 saves in 32 chances this year.
