Victor Martinez and Casey Kotchman (and Justin Masterson and Adam LaRoche) are presumably en route, David Ortiz is still keeping quiet, and J.D. Drew is nursing a strained groin. So the Sox are a team in flux tonight as they visit the Orioles. Here's hoping John Smoltz helps us forget about that guy from Toronto who just lost 40 percent of his value (according to Buster Olney).
As a bonus, we may see the big-league debut of Josh Reddick, the promising outfield prospect from AA, in town to replace LaRoche.

Smoltz got an out!
Bases loaded w/no outs, we get 1 run.
Ah, tyhe more things change, the more they stay the same.
2 innings, 2 jams, 2 DPs, 33 pitches. No bad so far.
For Smoltzy, that is.
Damn, two gamers. THE TRADE WAS *THAT* GOOD!
Win No. 2 for Smoltz.
And Josh Reddick made his ML debut.
And Papelbon pitched a clean 9th.
