Reed is 24 years old and has been very good for the majority of this, his 2nd full season in the Major Leagues (and first as full-time closer). I understand that to some of you, the idea that a player might need a learning curve in the Majors is unacceptable, but it is what it is.
And if he's not the answer, the Sox have plenty of good young pitching. There are so many other problems with this roster to worry about first.
