Pre-Game Notes: (5/17/07) Game 2

  • According to Rotoworld, Papi is sick and won't play tonight. Drew is still questionable. An OF of WMP-Crisp-Hinske? Don't be surprised is all I'm saying.
  • Apparently Braves' GM John Schuerholz saw my post last night and insisted on making me wrong. Craig Wilson was released today by the Braves. Thus, Thorman seems likely to get the start against Kason Gabbard anyway.
  • Epstein and Francona out to prove me wrong as well. Wake will start Monday in the Bronx. In 91 IP against the Yanks in NY, Tim has a 3.26 ERA. Sunday's starter is up in the air, though this means David Pauley could indeed get a callup anyway.

    Here are tonight's lineups:
