Hey, kids, it's time to watch Adrian Gonzalez try his hand in the outfield! Kevin Youkilis is back, Will is staying at third, and Adrian is headed out of the infield to make it all happen.
The Sox survived another bad outing from Clay Buchholz to move back up to .500 last night. Now they'll have a chance to finally move above that mark for the first time on the season, and possibly escape the cellar of the AL East for the first time in a long while behind Felix Doubront.

You have to admit, that's a decent looking lineup if you ignore the positions. And even then, it's just the one man out of place.
