    Re: Game Thread 75: Red Sox at Tigers

    That's two lefty and righty bats against a lefty starter with 1 good start for Detroit and good numbers from AAA this year.

    I don't have the stats, but believe the Sox have had tough times against lefty starters this year.  This is definitely the right lineup to go against Alvarez.  In your first start at Fenway as a lefty, the green monster has to be a little daunting. 

    Any bets on which half of the lineup--first four with two lefty bats vs. last four with four righty bats--gets more hits?  Among the last four are Middlebrooks and Lavarnway, who are both cold, but also Gomes who is warming up and Iglesias who has hit over .400.  In the first four Victorino and Pedroia aren't hot, but are consistent, plus two lefties, Ellsbury and Ortiz, who have been hitting well lately.   I think the first four, but hope it's both with lots of hits. 

    Any bets on who goes longer, Alvarez or Lackey?  I think Lackey.

    Clay Buchholz will throw a 45-pitch bullpen Saturday. If that goes well, he'll be activated and pitch Tuesday.

    Tigers starter Jose Alvarez posted a 2.26 ERA in 107 2/3 IP at Lowell and Salem in 2009 before being traded for Jeremy Hermida.

    Jose Alvarez has gone from Boston to Florida to Detroit -- the exact opposite of the career track Andrew Miller has taken.

    In response to mjagger's comment:

    W/O Ortiz, this would be a weak line-up and the SOX would definitely not be in 1st place. As of today, Ortiz is definitely the MVP of the SOX and a contender for the whole league.



    well the sox have scored the most runs in the league and yes Papi is a big part of it but there are a lot of other contributors... one who does not contribute and should not be playing is WM...he brings nothing to this team on offense or defense....iggy should be playing full time...
