Sox team meeting at 3:30; Bay hitting 5th, Lowell 4th

The Red Sox clubhouse will be closed at 3:30 p.m. for a team meeting, after which (scheduled for 3:45 p.m.) Theo Epstein and Terry Francona will hold a press conference. We’re anticipating an official announcement of the trade for Jason Bay, who is scheduled to meet the media after Tito and Theo.

Oh, and Mike Lowell is hitting in the cleanup spot tonight, with Bay hitting behind him at No. 5.
