1. Bray needs to go. Great pitching match-up. Hitting could have been better, but sometimes the pitching is just too good. But Bray was given the chore is close it out which he could not do, Had it not been for a fine play from both McDonald and Hanigan it could have been worse. Flores has had a better spring, Herrera has had a better spring. Bray has given games away.
2. Should Hanigan start ahead of Hernandez. In a pitching duel Hanigan manages to get on. He was in position to win the game when Bolivar took the bat out of his hand. Hanigan had batted .375. He has thrown out 5 of 7 base-stealers. (Only Red catcher to throw anyone out yet.) he made a put-out at the plate to end the Red Sox rally today. He has earned a spot.
3. Should Valaika be considered ahead of Janish? He is a better hitter than Janish, but his fielding could be better.
4. Why did Bolivar go in the 9th taking the bat out of Hanigan's hands? I can't believe he went on his own.
