The Sox don't have too many relievers who excel when sent out for a second inning of work. That's not the way it should be, but that's the way it is.

Also, it's a long season and Crain and Reed have already had a lot of work. In particular, they need to be careful with Crain, who is on pace for about 90 appearances.
