Boston Red Sox Baseball In TWO Days!!

And here's the Boston Red Sox official roster and lineup as they get ready for the first battle with the pinstripers at good old Fenway Park just two nights from now (can you believe it?)...

LINEUP

Dustin Pedroia 2B
Victor Martinez C
Kevin Youkilis 1B
David Ortis DH
J.D. Drew RF
Adrian Beltre 3B

Marco Scutaro

BULLPEN
RHP Jonathan Papelbon

DISABLED LIST
RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka (back)
RHP Boof Bonser (groin)
INF Jed Lowie (illness)
RHP Junichi Tazawa (elbow)

I don't see Alan Embree there...he might need more work. Boof is having his problems, as is Jed Lowrie, I'm sorry to say. We all are sick of Matsuzaka's various setbacks, but given time, he MIGHT get it together. Junichi is in trouble and might need surgery. He's young. He should be OK eventually. But the lineup looks great, just the way I predicted a couple posts ago. The rotation is superb. We all knew it would be. Great job, Theo. The bench seems thin but all in all, we're OK. This roster does not stand in stone, however, but for now, many wins are guaranteed. I like it. LET'S PLAY BASEBALL. I'll be here every day for you. I hope you come back often. Thanks. As always, BE WELL. See ya.
