Jason Bay re-injured his right hamstring, and it will likely take him out of at least two games; that leaves the limited Rocco Baldelli to play in LF, and Nick Green as the fourth OF. J.D. Drew has also missed a few games recently with a groin issue; I don’t have a lot of confidence that this outfield can stay intact for four straight games. With the Sox badly needing to gain some ground in this series with the Yankees, this couldn’t have come at a worse time. Uh, anyone have Josh Reddick’s number?
Tim Wakefield’s back and shoulder are back under control and he’s throwing again, but now he’s struggling with a calf issue; part of the price of working with two 40-somethings in your rotation. Let’s hope he gets back on the horse soon, because we are just getting shelled. Of course, that means two men have to be put back on the 25-man roster, since George Kottaras was DLed; so Billy Traber and who else?
