    Wow...Parmelee starting in left field. It's great to see him get a start in the outfield, however I thought it would be in right field!

    Hopefully they get to Lester early and score some runs to start off the homestand.

    If Parmelee is going to get at-bats with Morneau, Mauer, Plouffe, and Doumit (and, apparently, Clete Thomas) he's going to have to play some right, some left, and some first... wherever Gardy decides he has room. This will be good for him.

    I agree. I'm just surprised his first major league start in the outfield was in our spacious left field instead of right.

    I really don't like to get down on these guys, but I'm calling 2 errors tonight with this defense. Plouffe, Doumit, Parmelee -- sound like shut down D! Here's to hoping that their bats make up for it.

    Yeah. That Range at OF and Plouffe at 2B are pretty scary. At least Marquis is an extreme ground ball pitcher. Just hope they hit them the other way

    Good to see Tom Kelly in the booth tonight. I appreciate his honest analysis and willingness to call it like he sees it!

    14-0? It's possible. I don't think Lester is likely to set things up for a 14-13 outcome with another bad start though.

    And... Aviles slants left for a first down to start the game.

    Sweeney is stopped for no gain. Pedroia rumbles up the middle for another long gain. And Gonzalez executes a sneak for the first score.

    Eh, I'll stop now.

    Can't believe that Salty hit that pitch out. I think it was a terrific 0-2 pitch. That's just crazy.

    Now Danny is playing some D. Someone put a quarter in Danny today. Looks like he came to play.

    6-3... One of those grueling, low-scoring nothing but field goals games.

    Sending Marquis out for the 6th was questionable at best. Sending him out for the 7th was idiotic.
