    Jarrod Saltalamacchia is sick and may not be available. Terry Francona hinted that a move could be pending.

    "It would be nice to have a backup catcher," he said.

    Bobby Jenks is out. He and Jed Lowrie had MRIs today. No word on their status yet.

    The Yankees also have issues. Russell Martin is out with a sore back. Jorge Posada is away attending to his son, who is having surgery done. Joba Chamberlain went on the DL with a flexor strain. Jeff Marquez was claimed off waivers from Chicago and added to the roster.

    What happened to Jed Lowrie? He's been such a rock, a true warrior.

    Which Sox player gets hit?

    Youkilis?

    What inning does the retaliation come?

    Will we see a brawl?

    Too bad for people watching hockey, that used to be the place to see a good brawl...but they don't fight like they used to in the NHL.

    I'm looking forward to a full scale bench clearing fracas....great for ratings, guys!!!

    Tex is out, too. Expect Wastefield to really be inspired by Varitek's magic fingers and nimble blocking work.

    Bad timing for Salty, he was going well in his plate work and magic fingers work. Great time to look at Lavarnway for some part-time work. Varitek is a rock behind the plate, no worries about an injury or a brain cramp.

    I wanted a two year raise and player opt out of year 2 to get Putz, instead of Jenks. Oh well, Jenks is the rock Theo knew he would be.

    actually this will be fun. Wakefield throwing to Varitek is what I call old school. I think Tek will have fun back there.

    Actually, it will be geriatrics school, which might work against the Yankees.

    After little April and May use and a week off from his last marginal start, to rest up, here's guessing that his ceiling in a game like this is no better than a rate of 6 innings and 4 or 5 runs given up. Expect the usual goofball excitement, passed ball, hit batter, walk, runners on base moving up at will.

    Not feeling overly optomistic tonight. Wake vs. NYY hasn't yielded positive results in recent years and Salty's out meaning Tek is catching the knuckler. Hopefully Wake keeps us in the game and gives us at least six innings. I'm thinking we're going to have to score at least seven to have a chance. Hope I'm wrong.

    I think it will take at least 6 to avoid extra innings, unless Wakefield goes out early and the pen arms are sharp.

    Last night's win helps to create  a more relaxed attitude for tonight's game. The pitching matchup is certainly not favorable for the Sox. The chances of Wake shutting down the Yankees are not very good. Will need to score early and often off Burnett to have a shot at winning this one.

    If you are in the N.Y. area, you have to watch it in YES. Blacked out on ESPN.

    Try this, Space.  It's usually slow to buffer.
