    Varitek

    LF: Bay/Ellsbury
    CF: Ellsbury/Crisp
    RF: Drew/AAA callup

    I wonder who's going to be called up from the farm system..we traded 3 players for one. This could be interesting. A lot of prospects make an impact when they come up right away ala Buchholz, Ellsbury, Masterson, Lowrie. Some dud right away and pan out later ala Pedroia. But could somebody come up and make an impact for the last 2 months and in October? I imagine it will be relief pitchers. Daniel Bard perhaps? Or would that hinder his development? Bowden as a relief pitcher?
    Where's Youk in that lineup?

    As to the call ups, I think you have to call up Bowden and Chris Carter. Carter gives you just about everything Moss gave us, and Bowden can replace Hansen in the 'pen.

      Oops I only had 8 players in that lineup. I would probably put Youk after Drew. It seems crazy because of how well he's hitting but it helps balance our lineup from top to bottom.
      Ellsbury SB: 54

        I'm curious, what makes Lowell the perfect #5 hitter?

        Thanks.
