The Red Sox bench has been a great story all year long.

Lou Merloni believes the Sox have the best bench heading into the postseason.

"The Red Sox have the best bench, by far." said Lou Merloni, "Gomes and Carp coming off your bench with Bogaerts and David Ross, who can at least catch it and throw. And a guy like Quintin Berry who's going to steal a bag.  By far, huge advantage."

Bob Neumeier and Dan Shaughnessy believe the bench could be better with the addition of Jackie Bradley Jr. instead of having an eleventh pitcher on the roster.

"Ten (pitchers) is enough for a five game series." said Dan Shaughnessy, "You never use more than ten.  Unless you lose, you're going down.  Way better to have Bradley on the team."
