Wouldn't Floyd be a candidate for our pen at this point? AT least he's a real pitcher. Pitching in the pen wouldnt' preclude him from starting next year.

Maybe there are options issues though - I guess his last option wasn't used this year, so they might want to save it for a future year?s? - not sure how that stuff works.

I believe that since he is on the forty-man, his option is used no matter what. I could be wrong.

You are correct. Any player on the 40 but not on the 25 has had and option used on him.

Ah, that's right.
Well it's great to see him pitching so well.

Vazquez looks better at the plate than half our lineup.

Edit: And he K's. Thats about right.

I'm surprised to see Floyd pitching well enough to be considered for a major league role. Of course, I'm even more surprised to see our bullpen pitching so badly that anyone would consider Gavin ^&*( Floyd for a major league role.

That would be great if Gavin Floyd can finally put it together and live up to his potential. I don't think the Sox are going to rush this guy to the big leagues this year. I hope they are planning to give him the rest of this year to get some consistent success at AAA, then we'll probably see him in September.

I guess for next year, he has to make the team at the end of spring training because he will be out of options.
