At least JM is trying to get some offense going.

Or he just picked some names out of a hat again.

I hope Manuel knows what he's doing. If this lineup of his doesn't work, he's going to look like an idiot. Maybe if the Sox use it for a few games, they might get something going.

That is so weird to look at.

The only thing I don't like about this lineup is Ray ahs been doing a great job getting on base, there is no reason for him to not be in the top of the order.

We scored three runs, two of them off Konerko's dinger.

This was pointless, and smacks of panic. All Manuel did was place doubts in the minds of Durham and Thomas that weren't there before. How that benefits the team, I'm not sure. It certainly didn't help in the runs scored column.

Or the win column.

Where's the panic about the pitching staff? Now THAT'S something to panic about.

Well Thomas didn't seem to mind:
I think it was the proper thing to do. The No. 3 hitter is supposed to be your best hitter, the guy that hits .300 and drives in 100 runs. I did that a few years ago, but the No. 3 hitter has to be your most dangerous hitter. I'm not right now.

Argh... I agree with PHG... Why fix an offense that was on pace to score over 1,000 runs?

Maybe if our team ERA wasn't approaching 5, things'd be different.
