Game 51: Red Sox vs. Rangers

New, comments

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to what might be the last ride of Joe Kelly, Starting Pitcher.

The Red Sox are in a six-man rotation for now, more or less. But it seems likely that they're just waiting to see if Joe Kelly will give them some reason to believe his future isn't in the bullpen before they finally pull the trigger. Steven Wright isn't going down so long as he's at least turning in reasonable outings, Eduardo Rodriguez would need to pitch pretty badly in his second outing to be the sacrifice. But Joe Kelly might be on his last legs.

Will this be the last we see of him in the first inning? Or will he hang on for another round?
