    A front apparently just went through Boston, so this game will likely be played. Even with Sale on the mound, a win tonight is not assured, but the Sox are playing very well right now and no doubt want this to be the second win of another longish streak.

    With Devers presumably resting his hammie, I think Cora will move Bogie up to 4th, Holt up to 5th, Chavis 6th, Bradley 7th, Nunez 8th and Leon 9th. First three will remain Betts, Benintendi, and Martinez.

    Sox have lost both games in which Devers did not play this year--extremely small sample size. Remember those recent great grabs Devers made going back for pop flies? Nunez doesn't do those. He's pretty good at getting his glove on ground balls hit to the right or left, just not good at actually fielding them. His OPS is .571--lower than Leon's .582. Devers has the 3d best WAR on the team, 2.6. Nunez has the worst, -.8.

    Chavis now has a 9 game hitting streak, 12 for 41, .292. He had 6 hits in the 12 games before that.

    Is it asking a lot for this team to go 5-1 on this homestand?

    Nunez has hit at .758 in his last 17 games (since May 26th).

    Maybe he's snapping out of his funk.

    1.056 Bogey
    .977 JBJ
    .929 Holt
    .918 JD
    .823 Devers
    .782 Beni
    .760 Betts
    .758 Nunez
    .750 Marco
    .683 Vaz
    .648 Chavis

    Definitely expecting a sweep this weekend . Tonight is close to a sure thing . Vegas has odds about as big as you can get for a baseball game .

    You have to think that Beni & the Betts can only improve from here. Disappointing to see Vazquez sliding back towards Leon country. Chavis is still learning to find his zone and pitch type then drive it. Put the ball in play, son, and wonderful things may happen.

    Need to get on a roll and see if we can get a lead on the wildcard. The rays are crumbling.

    The Skanks are about to get the Bum.. I wouldn't put it past them. The Red Sox need to respond.

    Not a bad guess on the lineup though.

    11 pitch single by Sogard. That's why he's hitting over .300.
