Blue Jays - Red Sox Doubleheader: Game 1

New, 168 comments

Game time is 12:30. In other news, Hideki Okajima's option for next year has vested, so we can look forward to having him on the team for at least another year. Sometimes $1.75 million can buy you one of the best set up men in baseball.

It's Byrd versus Burnett (on 3-days rest). Here are the lineups:

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, RF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. David Ortiz, DH
4. Mike Lowell, 3B
5. Sean Casey, 1B
6. Jason Bay, LF
7. Jed Lowrie, SS
8. Jason Varitek, C
9. Coco Crisp, CF

Blue Jays

1. Joe Inglett, 2B
2. Marco Scutaro, SS
3. Alex Rios, RF
4. Vernon Wells, CF
5. Lyle Overbay, 1B
6. Adam Lind, DH
7. Rod Barajas, C
8. Scott Rolen, 3B
9. Travis Snider, LF

For some reason, Casey's batting ahead of Bay. Must have better career numbers against AJ. Also, Ells is lead-off and in right. I'd rather have seen Kotsay, but whatever. Game 2 should start at 7, as per usual. Comment away

    No. He's injured too frequently, and would cost too much.
