Game 4 of the ALDS — Lowell done?
Not only is Mike Lowell out of tonight’s game, he probably won’t play again until 2009. He’s off the roster, meaning he loses eligibility until the World Seres. Last night, it was clear as day just how limited Lowell had become on both sides of the ball.
Mark Kotsay will again play first base. Red Sox manager Terry Francona says everyone from Jonathan Papelbon to the rest of his relievers are likely available.
The lineup is pretty standard: Kotsay hitting seventh and playing first. Everything else is the same. J.D. Drew back in there in the five-hole.
