The now second-place Red Sox are on a roll, and frankly we would like to see them keep playing while they're in the midst of a five-game winning streak and their offense is hotter than a Yankee fan trying to get an autograph during batting practice at the new Stadium.
We'll see. The game's delayed, and the rain's pouring down. Comment on the (in)action here!

Postponed. Doubleheader tomorrow.
What does this do to the rotation?
Looks like no effect. Wakefield is scheduled to start in the afternoon, Penny at night.
With Baldelli hitting the DL and Bailey and Carter coming up who do you see getting more at bats with the double-header possible calling for some rest for the starters?
Liriano will be pitching the nightcap, so I wonder if Drew and Ortiz will both see rest for that game, with Carter and Bailey both playing that game. That’s a lot of potential thunder being removed from one game, but I could see Francona not wanting to play Drew 18 innings in one day or risk messing up what may be a returning Ortiz by having him face a tough lefty. I guess we’ll see…
