    So Bogaerts is resting today so Holt can play 3B ?  Drew singing definitely impedes on the playing time for some rookies.  Here's to hoping Sox gaining grounds on the division rivals.

    One thing's for sure. Drew takes precedence over the young guys. Why? Not so sure.

    There's going to be an even bigger logjam at 3B when WMB returns.  I see some trades happening before July 31 deadline - are there teams with big need for 3B who can send a power hitting OF.

    Two things: 1) defense, and 2) he hits LH, and his timing is getting a lot better at the plate

    There's always a big need for a 3rd baseman who can hit, so why does WMB fall into this conversation?

    Not about WMB.  Just about Bogaerts and Holt, who is playing 3B today.

    WMB's power would be welcome in the lineup, as long as he can be consistent.  Also need at least one more power OF, who can hit .280+, and have to start planning for a lineup without Papi.  Don't know if there could be another dedicated DH like him.

    lester is going to have to pitch a gem or else we are not winning this game with that pathetic line up. Sitting both napoli and bogaerts? Thats a big blow to our line up, the smart thing to do is sit one today, one tomorrow so the impact on the line up is not so great. Again, farrell struggles do things that any competent gm can do.

    Isn't Koji a FA after this season, and what, 39 ?  He is still on top of his trade.  Hate to lose him.

    Yes, BB, Koji and Miller are both free agents, after this season. Koji will turn 40, April 3rd.

    Thanks J, I hope Sox can secure both Koji and Miller, as well as sign up Lester.  They could be a force in 2015.

    The lineup is correct. Ventura is the kind of hard throwing righty that would give Napoli and Bogaerts trouble. Better to get as many left handed bats in there as possible. Anyway, it should not take many runs to win this one. Lester should dominate the KC lineup. 

    Stabbed by Foulke.
