3. How will the pen shake out?
With an ERA of 3.95 (18th-best in the majors) and 16 blown saves (the second most in the AL), the bullpen is one of the biggest question marks for the Red Sox. Hideki Okajima (12 of 17 inherited runners scored), and Mike Timlin (6.31 ERA) have not delivered, and Manny Delcarmen and Craig Hansen have had hiccups as well. The Sox will soon add Justin Masterson to the bullpen mix, but will they make a move to acquire another arm?
