Thinking Out Loud

So this really makes you wonder about Francona’s decision to bring in Papelbon in the 7th down 5-0, doesn’t it?

Would Masterson have been the better choice there, saving Papelbon for a key late inning situation like this?

UPDATE: He must have heard me blogging — after giving up a hit to Barlett and a walk to Upton, Masterson induced a double play grounder from Carlos Pena. So here we go — bottom of the 9th: Pedroia, Papi… Youk!
