Recovery for Youk and Coco
A much more standard lineup for the Red Sox tonight has Dustin Pedroia back in the No. 2 spot, with Youkilis batting cleanup and playing third base. Coco is also back, batting ninth. Jeff Bailey is starting at first.
Sept. 1 means no September callups for the Red Sox, at least today. Let’s face it, David Pauley and David Ross basically are September callups, they just hapened to be promoted earlier.
Once Portland and Pawtucket are through, the Red Sox could have some additional moves.
Terry Francona was non-committal when asked about Clay Buchholz today and whether he will resurface this year.
Speaking of Buchholz, tonight marks the one-year anniversary of his no-no — against these very O’s.
Other than that, a very slow Labor Day.
I went fishing this morning with my son Ryan. We both reeled in some nice sun fish and threw them back where they came from. It was a lot of fun. All the usual fishing stuff, rods getting tangled, catching big piles of seaweed, etc. It was a perfect day for it though.
