Looks like the Sox 25 man roster is shaping up. Craig Hansen and Manny Delcarmen got sent down to Pawtucket. Unfortunately, neither of the young guns the Sox are hoping will form the foundation of their bullpen down the line showed enough to displace any of the veterans.

Hansen's spring was particularly troubling. He had an ERA of over 15 and gave up five runs in 2/3 of an inning in his last appearance. He was very inconsistent and doesn't seem to have matured enough to compete in the big leagues.

I'm hoping that some time with the Pawsox will give Hansen time to get his head (and that nasty slider) together. He's got a great arm and lots of potential. I hope the Sox are patient with him as well. I'd hate to see him turn into another Cla Meredith.
