We’ll learn the answer to three questions tonight:
Which will be scarier: Matt Clement on the mound, or Matt Clement at the plate?
How good is Big Papi now that he’s feeling better? Since David Ortiz came down with the flu about 10 games ago, he’s had 11 RBI. I hope he’s sick like that more often.
How will Tito work the lineup? With a roster chock-full of .300 hitters, Francona — whose lineup-management prowess has been, um, somewhat lacking this season, will have to juggle three of our team’s best. For Game 1, Trot’s leading off, and Youk will be the best pinch hitter in baseball for a night.
Here’s hoping the answer to any of our questions this weekend is not Willie Harris. Comment away!
