Tonight's game starts an hour earlier than most because.....oh I don't know, Boston I guess.
Little bits of news:
- The Marlins DFAed Jarrod Saltalamacchia, which might make it tougher to trade Dioner Navarro (but then, since he's injured, you couldn't get much tougher to trade him).
- The Jays have moved Luis Perez up to Buffalo from New Hampshire.
- The Josh Hamilton trade has been announced, Angels get 'player to be named or cash considerations', but it will be nothing.
- Jose Bautista has taken batting practice and will play today, batting fourth and DHing. Apparently he hit a ball out of Fenway during batting practice. I guess that's a more than a little bit of news.
Joe Kelly starts for the Sox, 1-0, 4.08 in 3 starts. 17.2 innings, 13 hits, 2 home runs, 5 walks, 18 strikeouts.
Aaron Sanchez is 1-2, 5.14 ERA in 3 starts. 14 innings, 14 hits, 3 home runs, 12 walks and 9 strikeouts.

Remember we have rules here. Mostly don't be terrible (it seems like a small thing to ask). No arguing with the Mods, you have a problem, email me, but in the thread, let's not debate rules.
