McAdam had an interesting observation:
IIRC, the club's historical pattern has been typically to wait until the pre-game deadline to make roster moves official. In this case, it looks like they activated Cashner before they had to, and it's been a bit of an issue for the pitching staff for both last night & today's game. The 72-hour window for Cashner wouldn't run out until tomorrow, yes?In retrospect, for instance, the Red Sox might have been wise to wait a day to activate Andrew Cashner and instead, gotten themselves a fresh arm from Pawtucket to replaced the injured Steven Wright, if only for a day.
