    Interesting.  Assuming a win here; the last 4 series the Sox have played have been sweeps, the first one not being the right kind.

    Lester always seems to have great defense played behind him.

    I like the way Sutton swings the bat.  He rarely swings at bad pitches.

    Not saying I wouldn't take Ethier if it could be worked out, C-C.  I just don't see the Dodgers dumping him.  The NL West is still anybody's division to win.

    i know but the way jd has kinda plateaued here in his last year, i can see about 20 guys who could be available who would represent a significant upgrade. heck i wouldnt mind having cameron playing out there everday with a riddock to give him a blow every so often or to do a salt-tek kinda thing until a riddock blow him out with superior stats over time. ideally, we trade cameron, he will be better playing every day for a type b minor leaguer AND we send drew somewhere  with cash and a type c minor leaguer to help replace the stud we trade for a real bonafide upgrade whoever it may be. kind of like the election coming up: obama versus who ever the GOP guy is. in my poll, just about anyone beats DREW/CAMERON at this time!

    That inept coma is resting his pen way too much.  What a lousy manager.

    Why not give Sutton an AB there?  Cam against the right hander makes no sense to me.

    Salty is becoming the player everyone thought he'd be five years ago.  He needed to play.

    perhaps was too premature with posada, did not know about his issues with his son. he's been raking since the surgery. he's now approaching .230 and .350 obp. he must be hitting around .400 and getting on base about half the time for june.

    wil anyone give theo a cookie a cookie for salty? so many could have gone after him but theo did, trained him in the minors, and took a MAJOR risk giving him the job with the fossilized to back him up and further coach him. 

    joel, regarding that drew at bat, thats been his norm for most of the year.. no way theo or tito can be content. this now drew being drew! we must UPGRADE!

    9 game string .... more than 9 runs per game.

    Amazing.

    And Tito wasn't rubbing it in .... took out Adrian again, 2nd game in a row.  Perfect spot to pick up two more RBIs ...

    If the rest of the lineup hits like it has been hitting for the past six weeks, especially the catchers, I can live with Drew's .225-.230 in RF simply to have his defense in RF.

    hi J, well the X-Rays came back good..unfortunately he wasn't able to dodge a DL stint...hoping he can get back in 15 with no setbacks...Garcia did a nice job today to pick up the slack, but Yanks are gonna need to sustain that for a few weeks, can they is the question...also nice to have Jorgie and Swish htting pretty well lately..can't afford to let you guys get out of sight..

     agreed roy...say what you will about drew, but he's always solid in the field and he'll still get his hits

    Great performance by Lester especially in light of the long waits between innings (which he'll gladly take).

    Drew has played 51 of 65 games, which puts him on a pace for about 125 to 130 games, so yeah, I want that defense in there for all those games. Drew is much better than the kids (Kalish and Reddick) right now defensively, and Fenway's RF is one of the toughest RFs in the league.

    So with the kids coming up next year, I wouldn't give up anything big for a better-hitting RF'er at the cost of defense when the Sox need great defense in right before another bat in the lineup.

    Sox are playing with such total confidence.  Very impressive. As great as the offense has been, the best thing today is to see Lester get back on track.
