Tonight's Sox game against the Minnesota Twins has been rained out, the game will made up tomorrow as part of a day/night double header. Everyone knows what that means, we'll all be at work and won't be able to watch the first game.
Tim Wakefield will start game 1 tomorrow against Scott Baker, and Brad Penny is expected to face Francisco Liriano, although rain is in the forecast for tomorrow night. No worries though as the Bruins will be on, attempting to close out the Canadians in Montreal.
Other News and Notes:
- Iron Man Rocco Baldelli was placed on the 15 day disabled list with a strained hamstring which he injured during Monday's win over the Orioles running from 1st to 3rd. This is why I wasn't a fan of the Baldelli signing, he's JD Drew from the right side of the plate. Of course that's a wild exaggeration but still, stretch out a little longer win it's cold out, come on Rocco. Jeff Bailey has been called up from Pawtucket to take his roster spot.
-Julio Lugo will stay down with the Paw Sox until Sunday when he will re-evaluated and if all is well he'll return afterwards. Part of me would like to see what Nick Green can do at short over a long period of time, the other part of me wants to see if Lugo's good spring was a sign of things to come this year.
- Jed Lowrie underwent surgery on his left wrist today in Arizona and the good news is that he could be back before the all star break. After the surgery Tito said it went well and that Lowrie could be swinging a bat in 6 weeks. I'm still waiting for Lowrie to string together a couple of healthy months to see what he can do. When he was called up last year he looked great until he injured his wrist, same story with spring training this year. The good news is he didn't need surgery that would side line him for the season.
