Farrell: Preference For Junichi Tazawa As Closer

Preference For Tazawa
Early returns to our most recent FenwayNation Poll show it's pretty much a toss-up between Koji Uehara (50%) and Junichi Tazawa (41%) as the preferred new closer. But that may be moot considering that manager John Farrell told MLB Network Radio today that he prefers closing with Tazawa. Farrell went on to say that he thinks Uehara is better suited to the eight-inning set-up role. We shall see—maybe as early as tonight.
