Big Bedard Opener. Sam Dykstra recaps Erik Bedard’s Red Sox debut. Strong opening performance. Bedard stayed ahead of batters, didn’t walk anyone. With Clay Buchholz out indefinitely, Bedard needs to come up big for Boston. Buchholz is aiming for a return in the playoffs.

Miller Time Over? With Andrew Miller moving out of the rotation, Tim Britton wonders what will be Miller’s future role with the Red Sox. He asks is Miller trustworthy in the bullpen given his control issues. The Red Sox took a low-risk gamble on Miller and it looks like it is not paying off.

Yankee Insights. Britton spoke with Yankees beat reporter Marc Craig for a New York update. Craig likes Bartolo Colon over Freddy Garcia for the rest of the season. And Phil Hughes over Ivan Nova down the stretch.

Iglesias Update. Chris Mellen does a deep dive of Red Sox SS prospect Jose Iglesias. Strong defense, weak hitting is the Iglesias story to date. But remember, he is young and inexperienced in pro ball – a work in process. We’ll see if he develops at the plate to be a big leaguer.
