Open Thread: 8.2.06 vs. Cleveland Indians

5-1, 3.49
3-3, 3.98

A great rookie matchup in Boston tonight. SweSox has a breakdown of Sowers. Lester is coming off his first major league loss July 28 against the Angels. Sowers last two starts: 18.0 IP, 9 hits, 2 walks, 7 strikeouts, 0 runs. It could be a very bad night at The Park.

Sox lineup:

Youkilis 1b
Loretta 2b
Ortiz dh
Ramirez lf
Lowell 3b
Pena rf
Crisp cf
Mirabelli c
Gonzalez ss
I really like this lineup, minus the Mirabelli part but we can't do anything about that, can we? I like the combo of Lowell and Pena back to back. It gives the Sox a doubles hitter followed by a power-threat. Then again, Pena followed by Lowell may even be better.
