Saturday Morning Thoughts, If Any...

Good morning. Game three of the 2008 World Series has a first pitch time of 8:35pm EDT tonight in the City of Brotherly Love (and cheesesteak sandwiches...I like Genos). It will be the 40 plus Jamie Moyer facing the ALCS MVP Matt Garza. I look for the Rays to take a 2-1 series lead after this one with a blistering offensive attack and a Garza who will render the Phillies helpless. Look for the lefty Price to come in for the final four or five outs.

If the Red Sox land Mark Teixeira and successfully trade Mike Lowell (only AFTER the Tex acquisition is final), look for a 1-7 lineup something like this...

Coco/Ellsbury
Pedroia
Teixeira
Youkilis
Ortiz
Bay
Drew

How's that sound? That lineup is in the Sox thinking...I would put Big Papi in after Tex and follow with Youk, Bay and Drew. But this is all preliminary imagination run wild. I also read a Massarotti Boston Globe blog post that suggested such a lineup. First things first, though...sign Teixeira. Then a power-packed lineup will return to the still world champs. Pitching? That's another story, another day and another post.

I wish you all the best of weekends. Enjoy the game tonight, and look for Tampa Bay to silence the Phillies fans in attendance. If you're going, don't forget Geno's Cheesesteaks (alternate offering would be Pat's). As always, BE WELL.
