As the Boston Red Sox get closer to the end of Spring Training, it's not a bad idea to look ahead to the regular season.
CSN New England's Sean McAdam says that new closer Andrew Bailey doesn't need to dominate like Jonathan Papelbon, but that he will need to have the ability to shake off a blown save in front of a packed house at Fenway Park. McAdam says that Bailey has performed well in his previous stop with the Oakland A's but that is a smaller market team that plays in a bigger stadium. During his three seasons in Oakland, Bailey was 7-10 with a 2.10 ERA with 75 saves. He also had 174 strikeouts and only 49 walks in 174 innings pitched for Oakland.
