The Red Sox optioned Alfredo Aceves to Triple-A earlier in the week. 

Is this the last we have seen of Aceves? Lou Merloni and The Baseball Show Panel think so.

"You can put up with the crap if you are going out there doing your job.  You can put up with the Manny Ramirez's of the world if he's hitting 35 home runs and driving in 120.  To me, he's done here with the Red Sox."

So where does Aceves go from here?

"What you need to tell him is 'you're done, you're never coming back here again. Go down (to Pawtucket), pitch your butt off.  Show people you can at least start and we'll ship you on your way.' Because that's what he wants."
