The Boston Red Sox are at a crucial time of the season, where they have to go all the way to defend their title in the playoffs, and everyone knows that their main weakness right now is picheo, both starter and of relief, although a priori it seemed his greatest strength.
The general manager of the still champions, Dave Dombrowski, spoke to Michael McMahon of NESN, where he explains that the Red Sox bullpen has been "good", although statistics show otherwise:
"We have spoiled several salvages and have had a lot of them, but we have not seen as many games as it might seem. Our bullpen has done well"

Here lie the 2019 Boston Red Sox. Pronounced dead on August 4th. I’ve never had so much fun at a funeral in my life. We got out the shovels. The brooms. The children of Boston are gone. There’s no food for them. There never will be. pic.twitter.com/HZHLMoldbs
However, the Red Sox are fifth in all major leagues in terms of salvages spoiled with 20 throughout the season and are last in percentage of saved saves with only 52.4%, in addition to the effectiveness of their bullpen is the ninth in the American with 4.49.
