Tonight’s line-up card is out:

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, RF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. David Ortiz, DH
4. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
5. Jason Bay, LF
6. Jed Lowrie, SS
7. Jeff Bailey, 1B
8. Coco Crisp, CF
9. Kevin Cash, C
Clay Buchholz, SP

What’s wrong with this picture? Well, we have our shakiest pitcher, by a long shot, on the hill, and this is the support he gets? Jeff Bailey? Kevin Cash? Seriously, Cap’n Tek is finally showing signs of having some offense left in him (5-for-14, 2 HR, 3 RBI in his last 4 games), and Tito sits him down? I know he can’t catch every game, but ride him while he’s hot! Especially where he’s touted for “calling a great game,” isn’t that all the more reason to have him catch for the struggling Buchholz? And he just had a night off Friday with the rain-out. Speaking of offense, where is JD Drew hiding?

If the Sox lose this game, there is going to be one angry Denton around these parts. Four-and-a-half games out of the AL East lead and one game up in the wild card race in August is no time to be putting your B team on the field.

By the way, I “slept funny” last night but I’m at work today.
