Sox option Lopez; Schilling returns from DL

To make room for Curt Schilling to start tomorrow night against the Angels, the Red Sox optioned Javy Lopez to Pawtucket.

Who else could they have? It seems like the only option. They weren't going to DFA Kyle Snyder or Julian Tavarez, even though they are pretty much two pitchers for one spot, long relief.

This bullpen is looking a lot different now that Eric Gagne has his name penned in. This, barring injury, is the best possible pitching staff that we have. The only thing I could see differently is if Jon Lester is demoted and someone like Clay Buchholz earns a start down the road.
