Is Carson Smith Close To Being Ready For Fenway?

Which do you want first—the good news or the bad news? OK, here's the good news: reliever Carson Smith is pitching great at Pawtucket and may be on his way to Fenway soon.

Again, after last night's managerial debacle, one wonders if this new bullpen talent will also be squandered by Farrell's poor judgment. Stay tuned!
