CorsiBot still reigns supreme!

Tough luck Hairps - you are Paul Pierce to his LeBron James.

Anyways, I am getting sick of this flu shit (I am presuming that's what it is). Hopefully Lester can build off his last start.

Maybe there really is an intestinal parasite problem in Japan.

And according to the globblog, Youk is out today, MDC is only "so-so" and Tek and Coco are not expected to play.

Will they have enough guys or will they have to forfeit?? (kidding)... however, that decision to go with Hansen over a position player is looking sketchier by the minute. The starting nine tonight are playing with no one but guys too sick to play behind them. If someone sprains an ankle, who will come in to the game? Timlin?

Well, the link does say Coco is 100%.

Please throw strikes or this could be a long night. No Okijima for sure. MDC is doubtful at best I would say, and you can't expect too much out of Timlin, Papelbon, or Tavarez. I think we will end up seeing some combination of Hansen, Aardsma, and Lopez.

Surely its not too late to get someone like Moss back up from the bucket is it?

What is the major league record for most pitchers in a row scratched from starts due to the shits? Two in a row and it was almost three.

And Lester gives me the shits.

So if Beckett (pitching Sunday) and Mastuzaka can not go tomorrow.... it's Masterson's day to pitch.

It says his hammies are fine, and he is expected to play tomorrow, ie, not today:

Coco Crisp is on schedule to play in tomorrow afternoon's game. Terry Francona reports that Crisp told he's 100 percent from his hamstring woes.

I got that...but my point was that he is apparently available, since the post I was responding to (jokingly) wondered if they'd have enough guys to avoid a forfeit.

Theo says tonight's start may be "abbreviated."

I like the Hansen call up a lot because Hansen's been pitching in plenty of two-inning stints (just like Bard has), so if Lester can only go 4 innings or so, we get Hansen for two, and then Aardsma, Lopez, Timlin and Papelbon can finish off the last 3 innings.

The PawSox possibilities are Charlie Zink and Chris Smith.

Daisuke Matsuzaka, who missed his scheduled start on Wednesday night, is being examined this morning by Red Sox doctors to determine how contagious he is.

The likely plan is for Matsuzaka to remain in Boston while the Red Sox spend the weekend on the road, playing the Rays. Manager Terry Francona said he didn't see any sense in taking Dice-K along on the trip given the severity of his illness.

If the right-hander feels strong enough while Boston is on the road, the Red Sox will make whatever arrangements are necessary to make sure Matsuzaka can throw in Fenway Park. His next scheduled start would be Tuesday at home against Toronto, but there's no guarantee he'll be healthy enough to pitch that night.
