    Win 3, steal one. Let's put an end to their playoff hopes.

    Lavarnway gets the start.

    Salty is: .161/.257/.290 his last 9 games and Ross sucks w/ the bat going .173/.295/.308 in 20 games since May 1st.

    Obviously it's time to rest Salty (as several here opined since before the AS break). It may also be time to see if Ross or Lavarnway is the right back-up in the playoffs. As much as the Sox hate to use a sitting catcher for a PH, Lavarnway has a lot more of a clue then Ross with the bat - and is better than Salty with the glove. Just something to think about....

    The Yanks are playing really good as of late. Hopefully we keep our bats going like last night. I picked that we will win 3 games but I'd be happy to split the series

    We need to at least split. For the first time since mid-2011, our rotation is/has been solid. The Yankees have been doing damage recently too, so it should be quite a series.

    Will also be very interesting to see what Buchholz does tonight in his rehab game. In those starts you work on various aspects of your delivery, etc, so we haven't really seen what he will really be once back up in regular rotation. But in your last start you have to put it all together. He sure has the talent so lets hope there isn't too much rust.

    Lavarnway looks like he is really starting to feel comfortable at the plate. Pushed his average over .300 in his limited 62 at bats this year. I know some posters here have kind of written him off but I think he can be a very solid everyday catcher next season.

    And by everyday, I mean handing him 115-120 games.

    Salty has a bad back. That's why he hasn't played for the last couple days. It would really be nice if Lavarnway has some good games to discourage re-signing Salty. He's going to have to have good games to get any playing time once Salty is back.

    Very good AB by Lavarnway. Got lucky with the jamshot bloop single, but a good AB nonetheless.

    Another good AB by Middlebrooks with a solid opposite field single.
