Yes Red Sox fans, your non-Youk related prayers have been answered.  Or at least mine have, as I posted that I wanted Daniel Nava rather than Eric Patterson maybe 20 minutes ago.  With Pedroia coming up, the decision must have been that we have enough middle infield and outfield depth and it would be nice to have someone else that could hit on the 25 man.

My guess is, unless (or until) Cameron comes back, Kalish will be playing center most of the time and we'll be seeing Nava in left field against a lot of right-handed pitchers.  Tonight, of course, in the lineup, we have a starting outfield of McDonald-Kalish-Drew.

Not too bad.
