    This afternoon's lineup-Guess who is playing right field? Hint-he has not played outfield since college.

    RED SOX 
    Ellsbury CF
    Pedroia 2B
    Gonzalez 1B
    Youkilis 3B
    Ortiz DH
    Aviles RF
    Crawford LF
    Saltalamacchia C
    Scutaro SS

    NESN:
    An interesting look for Terry Francona's crew today. Mike Aviles will make his major league debut in the outfield, playing right and batting sixth.

    In fact, Aviles has not played outfield since college. Not one inning. And we know that right field at Fenway is not the easiest to learn. Should be interesting to see how he performs.

    Aviles is 5-for-10 with a double against CC Sabathia, so it's as good a time as any to get him in there.

    No surprise here to me. Reddick would be way overmatched vs. CC.

    The whole thing doesn't make sense to me.  If they think that little of MacD then cut him....and where is Sutton?

    I think Sutton is in Pawtucket now

    I think you make a good point.  If they are putting Aviles in the OF, then what is DMac's role?  If Aviles passes his OF test then I think DMac is gone when Lowrie and/or Drew return.

    I realize Sutton is not w/ the Big Club but that's the point - they sent him down in favor of Avilles and DMac.......Also, I thought Navarro had potential to play the OF.......The move kind of reminds me of when they got Rickey Guiterriz and Chris Woodard......

    McDonald is 1-for-10 against CC.

    Aviles is 5-for-10.

    It may have nothing to do with thinking little of McDonald as much as Aviles might be a better matchup.

    Yes, he has been way overmatched all year according to Francona.

    These matchups have barely worked this year
