Just got back from the clubhouse. Another day, another lineup.
As predicted yesterday, Pedroia is back in the leadoff spot. Youkilis back in the No. 2 hole. Drew is making his 2008 debut, playing right field.
Coco Crisp is starting in center against the hard-throwing Rich Harden. Ellsbury is out.
Cora is playing short in place of Lugo. Sean Casey will get a start this weekend in Toronto.
If the Red Sox get a save situation today, Jonathan Papelbon will not pitch — not after getting extended last night. Look for today’s closer to be either Okajima or Delcarmen.
