Red Sox got all over Britton in the first today. Chased before recording a full IP to the tune of 7 earned runs. Had some real bad defense mixed in with that too though. Should have only been a horrible inning, not a catastrophic one.
Exciting to hear Kyle Weiland will be getting the spot start on Sunday instead of Aceves. He's earned it for sure. He's been mowing guys down in his past couple starts, striking out 19 and walking none. Doesn't project to be a front of the rotation guy, but he's got pretty good stuff with a mid 90's FB that sits at 92-94 and can touch a bit higher in relief supposedly. He might end up there too, if we can't clear a rotation spot for him, and he might be more effective in that role eventually.
Hopefully he'll go out and do something crazy that convinces the organization they're better off with him starting the next few(all season) rather than Lackey.
