Tito on Pap: He's our closer

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said Wednesday that Jonathan Papelbon will remain the team's closer - at least for now. Francona was asked about Papelbon's struggles a day after he gave up five hits and four runs and had his ERA rocket up to a season-high 3.92. 

 

“I don’t think that you immediately take that guy out of that role for a couple of reasons," Francona said. "One is it upsets what you’ve got and the other one is the guy everyone is complaining about, where do you think he’s going to pitch? If you take your closer and make him your set-up guy, all the people you don’t want him to face, he’s coming in with men on [base]. It sort of a backwards [theory]. You better have a good closer and good rest of your bullpen. If you’re short, you get exposed.”

The Dana-Farber Genetics and Prevention Program offers advanced genetic tests to determine whether individuals are at risk for inherited forms of cancer. Dr. Garber says, “A visit to the Cancer Genetics and Prevention Clinic usually includes time with both a physician and a genetic counselor, both of whom have expertise in all forms of inherited cancer syndromes. We educate patients about cancer risk and its implications for them and their family members. Working with referring physicians, we design individualized programs to monitor for the earliest signs of cancer — diagnosing if it occurs, and, in many cases, preventing it from arising.”
