Jerry Manuel says that he won't put Frank Thomas at first base unless there's some sort of emergency. I think this recent losing streak qualifies as one, don't you?

Jerry Manuel says that Miguel Olivo will have the next few games off, because he's been struggling since he injured his shoulder. I expect him to be in the lineup either today or tomorrow.

The starting pitching has been terrible on this trip. I don't want to make a big deal out of this, but it seems as though some umpiring crews have some sort of beef with the Sox. Whenever one of these crews covers Sox games, it's a foregone conclusion that the pitching staff will have a rough night.
