Getting called up to start the 2nd game of tomorrow's DH. Personally, I like him a lot and think he's got a decent shot at excelling. What are you guys thinking?

They officially stated it was for one start only. He could be up to stay later in the year but not now.

Not exactly sure why they aren't starting Doubront. Was supposed to be his normal day before the postponement anyway.

Heck yeah! People are sleeping on this guy because of control problems last year but was the apple of the Gonzalez deal last year to the dodgers. Mid 90's sinking fastball touches 97 some days with good movement plus change decent slider. Awesome spring great start to the minors this season. Should have been ranked higher on prospect lists.

I picked him up to stream in my yahoo league but I can't actually start him because the Sox have already played a game today. So that's kind of a downer. Just a fair warning to others in Yahoo leagues.

Rubby de la Rosa has something to say about that.

Rubby is good but this guys command was the only thing keeping him supposedly behind him. Most would rank Allen over rubby if that had not been the case either way two stud SP's that can dial it up to 97 is a nice haul.

Even if it is just a spot start line so far:

4 IP 3 H 0 ER 3 SO

Not too shabby!

Had a rougher 5th inning where he gave up 2 homers, but still so far has only thrown 67 pitches through 5 IP.

Has 5 K's and 2 ER. Still pretty good so far.

Hopefully the Sox can muster up more offense and get him a W.

Wish he could stick and stay, but that isn't in the cards for now. Especially with Lackey coming back.

Yeah 2 solo bombs =(

But still his poise is awesome and he looks in control even after the bombs. I like what I see, just wish he would stick in the rotation.

He is the type where I have him on my roster for this one spot start and then I will be forced to drop him but then he will get called up later in the season due to injury or next season and then he will really take off and I will be kicking myself for dropping him. I can just see it now.

Colder weather makes it harder to put sink on the ball. The two homers tonight are going to be the exception for this guy not the rule. Def a good start none the less and agree my staff sure could use this guy. I read somewhere though where a red Sox official expects him up in June for good and I think Pete gammons expects July. So not really much longer if they do indeed send him back down.

Wonder who they plan on replacing so they insert him in? Doubront? Lackey?
