The Red Sox look to extend their winning streak to 6 games with another contest in Windy City, the very windy city for this series. This is the lineup for Boston vs. Chisox righty Jake Peavey.
Jon Lester is looking to get back on track after two sub par performances. Lester is a very key component to the 2012 Sox success, it will be interesting to watch his outing tonight. The Sox batters will be challenged by the former NL Cy Young winner and hurler of a recent complete game shutout, Peavey.
Hopefully they will respond as they did vs. Perfect Game Phil Humber.
In pitching news, Dice K had a strong rehab outing for the Sea Dogs today at Hadlock Field. And the latest buzz on Aaron Cook, and his looming May 1st opt out date, is the Sox are strongly discussed recalling him and placing him in the bullpen and leaving Bard in the rotation. Who is likely to go to make room? Atchison, Albers, or maybe option Tazawa ( although he has been effective and should stay around).
No live chat tonight, feel free to leave any comments on tonight's game, Dice K, Cook or any other thoughts right here.
