Derrick,

I love it! As a life long member of the RSN (born in Boston, raised in Southern ME) and someone who fondly remembers watching Oil Can Boyd pitch this is a great blog! Congrats - and get better soon!

Thanks - Melissa (BU Classmate)

Hey Melissa,

I did not care for last nights line up. I'm not going going to claim that I know more about baseball the Tito, but I don't see what Drew in the lead off spot gets you.

Dusty batting lead off is a no brainer right now, same same with youk in the 2 hole. You're hottest hitters need to see the most pitchers and AB's. Ortiz 3, lowell 4, Bay 5, Drew 6.
