Sean McAdam joined Jessica Moran to answer fans' questions during the Jordan's Fan Feeback segment of The Baseball Show.

One viewer asked how Felix Doubront fits into the Red Sox postseason roster.

"Right now he doesn't." said McAdam, "You've got four starters, he's not one of them.  You've got one lefty in Craig Breslow and probably the second lefty is going  to be Franklin Morales.  If they go with a third with eleven pitchers, it well could be Matt Thornton.

"The problem is that Doubront has not pitched well out of the bullpen.  He typically is a guy that takes a while to warm up, and it takes him a while to get into the rhythm of the game… that's not a good thing you want to experiment with in the postseason."

Other questions answered in the Fan Feedback segment include...

·  Will Sox aggressiveness continue in the postseason?
·  Is Andy Pettitte a Hall of Famer?
