Open Thread: 5/16/07 vs. Detroit [Rained out]

New, 5 comments

Time to pick up the slack and take this series behind a couple of victories. It'll be tough as the Sox have our favorite crazy righty, Julian Tavarez, on the mound. For the Tigers it's lefty Mike Maroth.

The game is likely to be rained out but if not, here are your lineups for tonight. Wily Mo Pena earns the start in right. I'm assuming JD Drew is still feeling the effects of crashing into the wall last night.

Terry Francona said today that Josh Beckett will not pitch on Friday. He said someone from Pawtucket will take his place. I'd like to see David Pauley get the start. If not, Kason Gabbard or Devern Hansack would be nice. Runelvys Hernandez is another possibility.
