Comments Off on Reyes Waived, Doubront Activated
The Red Sox parted ways with Dennys Reyes today and actived rookie lefty Felix Doubront from the DL. Additionally, the Red Sox DLed Matt Albers and promoted Alfredo Aceves from AAA Pawtucket yesterday.
Another news worthy move has Terry Francona, yet again, adjusted his line-up. Here it is for today’s game:
lf – Crawford
2b – Pedroia
1b – Gonzalez
3b – Youkilis
dh – Ortiz
rf – Drew
c – Saltalamacchia
cf – Ellsbury
ss – Scutaro
Crawford leading off with Ellsbury to the 8th spot. I thought the idea of moving Crawford down to the 7th spot was to take some pressure off until he finds his grove. Well, I guess Francona thinks he’s found it. I guess a .250 average since he dropped Crawford to the 7th spot in game 3 is considered being “hot” on this team right now.
I’m not sure of Francona’s reasoning on this, I just hope it isn’t to give us, the fans, the impression he is trying all he can. In fact, switching guys around all day might do more damage than good.
