GameThread: Red Sox at Toronto Blue Jays, Jul 19, 2009

If the Sox want to trade for Roy Halladay, hopefully they can get it done before 1pm today. Otherwise they'll have to hit against him. Lester takes the mound for Boston after an entirely predictable defeat last night. Aside: If I had a nickel for every time in the past few years that some soft-tossing lefty they've never faced shuts down the Sox offense, I'd have enough money to pay Julio Lugo what his defense is worth ($0.85).

Lineups:

Red Sox
1. J.D. Drew, RF
2. Dustin Pedroia, RF
3. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
4. David Ortiz, DH
5. Jason Bay,LF
6. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
7. Jason Varitek, C
8. Mark Kotsay, 1B
9. Nick Green, SS
-- Jon Lester, SP

As Extra Bases has no lineup for the Jays yet, we can assume that Cito Gaston thinks Roy Halladay can beat the Sox sans defense and offense. I wouldn't put it past him... Comment away!
