Friday Red Sox Report

As the Sox head into Balimore, Manny is holding at 499 and will reach the milestone very shortly. Been in a little bit of a slump ever since he hit 498 and matter of fact, the whole team has been in a slump this road trip. How can such a team with so many fine hitters that were killing the ball at times in Fenway Park suddenly freeze up. 3 runs in two games AND those runs came on a Manny round tripper!!! The Sox are batting .169 over the last 6 games. Ray Allen 'showed up' for the Celtics on Wednesday, so about some of the Sox players showing up for this series in Orioleville. The C's and the Sox are quite similar, actually.

Still waiting to hear about Dice-K's MRI and we can expect them to DL him at least just to give him a rest. Buccholtz going today for the PAWSOX so I guess that means that Masterson will be called up on Tuesday to take Matsuzaka's place in the rotation for a couple starts. Don't expect the sox to DL him until then, but it will be retroactive. However, they could make multiple moves and DL him today and bring up somebody until Tuesday and swap with Masterson on Tuesday. Getting another look at one of our youngsters?
