But Pauley is being sent down today. And it was nice to see him. Sometimes we fans get so wrapped up in the big league (or those who are in AAA) that we forget about the kids struggling to make it happen. I just hope he doesn't lose faith based on his outings.
Those aren't horrible numbers (especially th game in NY) for someone who was jumped two grades to play in the bigs.
"I saw what it takes to stay here," Pauley told the Boston Herald. "I have to go down and work on getting better so that I can get back here."
And it was a good thing for the Red Sox, too. With all their injury woes, they needed someone to pitch a few innings and they got it.
