07:00 AM ET 04.26 | Of course, the easiest way out for Boston would be to either release Alfredo Aceves or trade him for whatever they can get. But the Red Sox still think he can be an asset. And so, one day after demoting Aceves to Triple-A Pawtucket, manager John Farrell and general manager Ben Cherington insisted the move was made in response to the right-hander's poor performance, not his eccentricities and personality quirks that often are detrimental to the team. Moreover, Cherington noted that Aceves' track record is good enough to believe he can revert to being a useful member of the pitching staff. "Yeah, I think he can," Cherington said [Thursday]. ... "Once he pitches better, then there will be better options for him."

No sense in bashing him if you are trying to trade him for a useable part.

Like a parts car? He's a parts pitcher?

Like parting out a rusty 74 Vega with the 3-speed manual, no, scrap it.

"When he pitches better, there will be better options".

In other words, we can trade him when his value is a little higher.

I'm really enjoying the Blue Jays' struggles.

I vote for the shock therapy. I'll even donate the jumper cables.

I got a couple of spare batteries not doing anything now.

I think we are on to something.
