In the offseason, I was adement about keeping Alfredo Aceves, as he was one of the better pitchers for the Boston Red Sox last season but it seems to have gone a bit too far. It almost appears as though he cares about nobody but himself. First, it was getting suspended for getting pissed off when Bobby Valentine chose Andrew Bailey (the real closer) to close a game instead of him. And then, there was the weird game where he called off Salty and missed the pop up. After, when Dustin Pedroia confronted him in the dugout he argued, and shoed away Bobby V. At this point, it seems as though it has reached a boiling point and they need to let him go at the end of this season even if Bobby V doesn’t come back. No matter how good a pitcher he is, it is now clear he is one of the bad seeds in the club house, so pack his bags and send him on his way.
