    Aceves optioned for Morales; sounds like an OF (most likely Bradley) could be recalled tomorrow to balance the roster.

    Both Victorino and Middlebrooks are on track to be activated once eligible. That's June 5 for Victorino and June 8 for Middlebrooks.

    The bad news:  Ryan Dempster against Cliff Lee tonight.

    The good news:  The Sox have a one game lead in the AL East so no matter what happens they'll be in 1st place in the morning!

    Re: Game Thread 53: Phillies at Red Sox

    Frightening matchup.  When they meet at home plate before the game, it will be to discuss the terms of surrender, after which Cliff Lee will be invited by the home plate umpire to hook Dempster's carcass to the back of his chariot and then to drag it three times around the confines of Fenway. 

    Interesting thought about Bradley.  Because Carp can play 1B, the Sox can get by with what they have, but Bradley would be so nice in there on defense, maybe as a pinch runner who then goes to the outfield.  Against a righty starter, Bradley (RF), Nava, and Ells could start in the outfield with Carp at 1B, giving Napoli a break.

     Interesting comment by Farrell in regard to Dempster:

    "It would have been his normal day to start on rehab today," manager John Farrell said. "And given the last three starts that Ryan (Dempster) has gone through, we felt like we needed a multi-inning reliever out there in the pen. That's where Franklin (Morales) comes in to us."

    "We'd prefer not to [have the extra pitcher in Philadelphia]," Farrell said. "We're going to either pinch-run, pinch-hit. There's going to be the need for an additional position player. That might be coming."

    "If he(Bradley) were the guy to come back, he would come back as the extra outfielder," Farrell said.

    This is the kind of game where you " hope to steal one."   Pitching matchup strongly favors the Phils.

    Looks like the Sox plan is to go to the opposite field with Lee.

    I think Ross has struck out in his last six at bats.

    Farrell must really know something in batting Gomes 2nd and Ross 7th.  GO SOX!

    Dempster needs to get out of this.  Lee won't give up much.
