Terry Francona Has Decisions to Make After Exhausting Bench in 13-Inning Marathon

A rain delay can make a manager's life difficult when he must decide whether or not he can send his starter back out when the game does resume. When you add extra innings to the mix, then things get real tricky.

That was the problem Terry Francona had on Wednesday night, as the Red Sox dropped a 5-3 decision to the Angels in 13 innings. The skipper had to turn to Daisuke Matsuzaka in the 13th and, as a result, will probably have to juggle his roster some more in the coming days.
