So that’s what it looks like when the Sox field a full lineup. With the starting nine bats all healthy for the first time since the first week of April, the Sox picked up Josh Beckett (who had an off day, and the Sox hope he can continue having such off days) slaughtered the Rays and go for the sweep today.
Jon Lester faces Scott Kazmir, who makes his 2008 debut and has generally been quite good against Boston. Here’s hoping Lester doesn’t have an off day, as well. With him, it’d more likely be eight runs in four innings instead of the other way around. Coco Crisp replaces Jacoby Ellsbury in the lineup, while Brandon Moss is unavailable following an emergency appendectomy last night.
