'High Maintenance' Aceves Again Wants To Start

Alfredo Builds Team Spirit
Admit it, Alfredo Aceves' behavior was one of the few interesting things about your 2012 Carmine Hose. From feuding with Dustin Pedroia (see pic) to taking 495N to get back to the dugout without confronting Bobby V., Alfredo has been—well—interesting. Now we learn that the mercurial Aceves again wants to be in the Red Sox starting rotation. He claims to have been 'misled' about starting this year and was upset that Daniel "Must Be The Clouds In My Eyes" Bard took his spot. The real question is whether Boston will trade Aceves and let him be some other team's headache. Of course, his overall career numbers are pretty darn good and—as we have found out too many times—you can never have enough starters. Our guess is he is "re-upped" next year, and Bobby isn't.
