In addition, wouldn't Peavy and Danks benefit from some extra rest? I'm not a baseball expert like some other posters here, so I'm asking an honest question. I'd appreciate hearing the thoughts of others.
Because the Sox badly need a second left hander in the bullpen, that guy appears to be Santiago (short of a trade...)
