Friday, August 15

Pregame notes:

The tarp is still on the field and we could be looking at a double header tomorrow. I'm about a 10 min walk away form Fenway and scene out my window doesn't look good. The forecast calls for an unsettled evening of weather, but the game could sneak in. If there is a game tonight, here is the Red Sox (71-51) lineup: (note Jacoby back in the lead off spot)

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. David Ortiz, DH
4. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
5. J.D. Drew, RF
6. Jason Bay, LF
7. Jed Lowrie, SS
8. Sean Casey, 1B
9. Jason Varitek, C

SP- Paul Byrd, RHP

ITM notes:
-The Yanks are looking more and more desperate, making multiple moves today to try to bring up some fresh legs with high OBP numbers from the minors. Stick a fork in them.
-No word on the Rays Troy Percival who was injured last night. It could be another significant blow to their AL East division hopes.
-The Jimmy Fund Telethon is having their annual fundraiser, hoping to get to 4 million dollars, such a good charity to help.
