He wanted to work as a landscape architect, or horticulturist, or maybe start a small farm. The Midwest-born young man, with an architectural degree, was ready to pursue a dream.Right place, right time.“We didn’t want to lose him,” says W. Courtney Lowe, director of sales and marketing at the inn. “He’s a great kid, really smart and a hard worker.” Advertisement So, the Woodstock Inn & Resort, owned by the Rockefeller Foundation, offered Pauly a half-acre of pasture land on the site of a former dairy and horse farm, and the title of master gardener.

We’ve looked at every position on the field, and we’ve examined the starting rotation, so what’s left in our State of the Red Sox series is the bullpen. It’s a group that has a standout in the ninth inning and a long list of options for the middle innings. It performed well last season, but still carries significant uncertainty into this season. Closer Baseball has come to more fully appreciate relief pitchers who do not pitch the ninth inning, but bullpen attention still tends to focus on closers, and the Red Sox have one of the best in the business.
