    Never expected Xander Bogaerts would have a -0.1 fWAR (0.1 fWAR) on July 25.

    So @Middlebrooks is 9 of 28 with 3 HRs last 7 games of AAA rehab. Could 3B in contention for the #RedSox?

    That's at AAA. He'll come up and bat .200-240 with a 33% k rate.

    Little surprised that Pedroia is in the lineup...Holt usually plays 2b on Fridays, SS on Saturdays, 3B on Sundays, RF on Mondays, LF on Tuesdays, CF on Wednesdays, and 1B on Thursdays...he could come into relieve as well, depends on if Farrell wants an effective 7th or 8th.

    Sometime during  pre game warmups----Lester should have two sentences for Price--You hit my guy--your best player will be my target. Whether I get tossed or not--I will take him with me out of the game.

    There could be more than just a couple of players yelling from deep in the crowd. The Sox should be in a bad mood tonight and almost anything could set them off.

    Here in upstate NY, it appears that MLB network is carrying tonight's game. It's been a while since I've seen this remarkable team. Don't predict the SOX scoring too many this evening(<3 runs) How's that for going out on a limb. Hopefully, some heads will roll after this season's over.

    I know of a lot players that bouncing from position to position takes its toll. Maybe Holt is having a great time circling the diamond defensively, but he needs to be settled into a spot--RF wouldn't be a bad landing spot either. He's got a great eye for judging fly balls. And those who don't think it affects you offensively, bouncing around does exactly that. When you look at it from a scouting standpoint and from a physical standpoint, you are taking an entirely different approach at SS or 3B than you are in RF or LF or CF and those outfield spots all have their own idiosyncrasies. It will take its toll. But it's the feel good story of the year, Mr. Cesar Tovar Holt.

    If they lose the series I would predict there will be players DFA'd because it will be apparent no one is interested in trading for them: Peavy and Gomes. Deadline move Ue---this could be Lester's last start in a Sox uni. The Sox have 60 games left--9.5 out today--10.5 or 12.5 games out end of weekend.

    Right or left, that's for sure. Instincts are beyond belief. Much more time to react, and take advantage of them in the outfield.

    I'm thinking it's hard for overpaid millionaires to ever be in a bad mood. Take my word for it; in modern day baseball the fans take the losses harder than the millionaires.

    After the Toronto series, I am now more at peace with Sox.  Won't be down if they lose, won't feel euphoric if they win.  Will just enjoy the game regardless of the outcome.

    Will hope the youth movement gains momentum, with Bogaerts finding his touch with the bat, Holt and JBJ continuing to flourish.

    Also thankfully watch the curtain call for some of the veterans, like Gomes, perhaps even Victorino, Lester and Papi.

    Papi will be back next year; as for Gomes, hopefully he is gone by 7/31. Victorino is a human curtain call, Lester, should be traded by 7/31 and than the SOX pick him up as a free agent during the off-season or they don't.

    Gonna be a long night if Price is going to get calls on balls 3 inches outside and down.  That's not hittable.

    Rumor has it that manager Farkell was seen at a novelty store purchasing eye covers. They give the eyes the appearance that they're open, when, in reality, they are closed.
