I don't know if you would want to use a roster spot for McDonald. His only purpose would be to provide insurance for the very unlikely possibility that Pedroia could not play. If you keep him and Berry , you have two non hitters. Between Bradley and Berry , it basically comes down to a pinch runner vs. a defensive replacement.I think they will keep Berry , due to the " Dave Roberts" factor. ( I did notice the other day that, after nearly being picked off by Rivera , Berry became cautious and did not try to steal, thereby defeating his whole purpose.) My picks for the bench are Bogaerts, Carp , Gomes , Bradley and Lavarnway. In reality, I think Farrell will take Berry and Ross over Bradley and Lavarnway. Keep in mind that , if the Sox move on , the roster can be adjusted from one series to the next.
