    The bullpen has been a pleasant surprise outside of Brasier. Josh Taylor is looking like a rare occurrence for the Sox where they deal away a nothing player (Deven Marrero) a get a very useful player in return. Like Ty Buttrey in reverse...

    One could argue the pen has over performed expectations 2 years in a row.

    If you look beyond save percentage, our pen has been pretty good all season. They have been very good recently. They have had to carry a workload much greater than expected, and if our starters had done their jobs, our save percentage would look a lot better. I'm sure of that.

    While the pen does carry its share of the blame, they are not the reason that the team is where it is in the standings.
