FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Deposed Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey said he completely understands the move the team made to acquire Joel Hanrahan, which bumped him to set-up man.
“I think the move was good,” he said. “It definitely bolsters our bullpen and makes it stronger. I totally understand it. I was hurt last year. I can’t do anything about it. If I had pitched the way I was capable of pitching, that trade doesn’t happen.
