Colon Faces Dodgers Tonight

Bartolo Colon should throw at least 60 pitches tonight against the Dodgers:
Pedroia, 2B
Varitek, C
Ortiz, DH
Ramirez, LF
Lowell, 3B
Youkilis, 1B
Ellsbury, RF
Crisp, CF
Lugo, SS
Globe: "Varitek was slid into the No. 2 slot to get an extra at-bat."

J.D. Drew:
I'm a lot more mobile. I still have a little twinge in there. I did some exercises and had some ice and some massage. It continues to calm down. ... If I made as much improvement tomorrow as I did today, then I should be looking good.
Josh Beckett will pitch again in Florida on Tuesday and could pitch the final game of the Toronto series, on April 6.

Sean McAdam, on the Red Sox/Dodgers game Saturday night:
Some 115,000 fans are expected [which would be the biggest crowd ever to watch a baseball game in the United States] ... It will be just 201 feet down the left field line with a 62-foot-high netting. The left-center power alley will be just 280 feet, with straight-away center at 362 feet.

Colon looks GREAT so far---4 K's in 3 innings. If he can actually pitch, what a boost that will be!

One decent fat man for another. Theo is a genius!

Home from work -- if Vin is on, I'll listen.

Looks like I missed Colon - Lips is in.
