Hopefully Remy can bring some new pitchers with him and maybe some healing powers. This pitching staff needs a wake up call. Is it too soon to start talking about rebuilding? Maybe a little, but if the Sox are still in last place with a losing record by the end of this month and into June it will be time to go into full rebuilding mode. With tonight's Red Sox starter Josh Beckett (2-3) being the number one trade target. Hopefully starting tonight he will pitch well enough that someone will want to take his salary and give up some prospects. This team does have a lot of talent on the DL but I hope we have learned from the past that you can't rely on those guys to come back and save a season. It just doesn't work that way. They can certainly improve the team, but not rescue it.
Here is my predicted lineup for tonight's game:
Byrd CF (just threw up in my mouth a little knowing that we have no one better on the roster to play CF)
No live chat tonight so leave thoughts, feelings and frustrations here in the comments section. Look for the actual lineup in the comments section once it is made public. Here's to hoping that they show multiple video montages of the glory years with Lowe and Damon on the new HD screens at Fenway tonight. So we'll have something to feel good about. Here's a little taste to get you pumped up:
