    Drew over Reddick ?
    12 pitchers ?
    You actually think Clay will be back ?
    And Jenks but no lefty besides Miller ?
    No McDonald or wiaver pickup for r/h outfielder ?

    I make above switches, e.g. Reddick / D-mac ( or preferably ANY r/h acquisition ) over Drew in rf; Morales or Doubront over Jenks, and 11 pitchers-no Buchholz.
    Possibly McDonald over Drew, and depending on performance, maybe Lavarnway as 14th bat.

    The Sox are not going anywhere this year in the playoffs. It will be 1 and done after they meet Texas in the first round.

    If Boston meets Texas in the first round, then it looks like Texas will be advancing.

    Wake up and smell the coffee Moonslav. The Sox may back into the playoffs but they are not going anywhere. Where has Agon gone? Where is that 140 million bust in left field? Where is Papi? Where is Youk? Now Ellsbury hurt. Reddick, Lowrie, McDonald and Lavarnway in the lineup every day. Lackey, Miller, Wakefield part of our vaunted pitching staff. Like I said, the Sox are going nowhere in the playoffs. Oh, and I forgot, we have a manager who couldn't light a fire if he were in the cub scouts.

    2 WS titles, but can't light a fire...interesting. How many managers have managed a team from 3-0 down to win a series in MLB history? Yeah, Tito many, that's how many.

    You're right Danny. At least we can look back on those 2 world series titles for the next, let's say, 30 or 40 years. Not saying Cona didn't have anything to do with the titles but when the going gets really tough we just can't seem to hack it.

    You seem to have no clue that seasons have ups and downs, and injuries come and go.  the same kind of sky-is-falling cr@@p could have been posted with the same truth-content in 2004 or 2007.  Papi, ellsbury, and Youk (and Bucholz) are with short term injuries, get a hold of yourself.  What matters is how they are playing in about 5 weeks, not right at the moment.  And that goes for the 'bust' as well.

    And by the way, you might be right, maybe they will loose in the first round.  But that's true of every team all the time, so even if you are right, you would be right like someone confidently declaring that a coin flip will be heads.  Like if you get it, it's a coincidence, get it?

    And you think a first round loss will be satisfying? The Sox on paper were picked to win it all this year. They might have had a chance if not for the injuries and the underachievements but I don't like their chances now.

    If they were healthy now, and firing on all cylinders, that still wouldn't mean they wouldn't have slumps and injuries come playoff time.  I'm jujst saying have a little perspective, all teams have ups and downs, and they are in a down.  But you can't look now (in my opinion) and have any statistically valuable insight into 30 games later.  Now, if they were on the cusp on missing the playoffs (which could still happen) that's one thing.  It takes a lot of luck and some planets lining up for any team (ANY) to run through to the WS.  We migth, probably not, but these thigns now are not all tha timporant.

    One last thing, though they were picked to win it all, that just means the one team with the best chance.  Still, what were those chances - 1 in 8, maybe one in 6.  No one was saying it was more likely than not, or even odds.

    Paul, the Sox medical staff won't allow the players to play if they bumped their knee into the water cooler. With that said, what exactly is Tito supposed to do with perhaps one of the worst benches in the AL? The bench is just not very good, and that is on Theo, not on Tito.

    1. They don't need 12 pitchers in the playoffs because they won't need more than 4 starters.  

    2. Jenks is not on any post season roster. He hasn't done anything to warrant a spot all year and if happens to get hurt during the series, they lose a roster spot for that series.

    3. Buchholz? He's done for the year.

    4. The additional positional player will be a righthanded hitting outfielder.

    5. Lavarnway may make the roster instead of Lowrie. Lowrie is a defensive liability given his .940 fielding percentage, and he hasn't hit a lick since May 1.

    I'm just glad that someone else feels that Drew is the guy you want in RF in the playoffs.

    Btw, what nonsense that Reddick's catch was ruled "not a catch", apparently. That should have been a double play as he threw to first as well. Can someone please start a demand for instant replay already?  It's 2011. And knock out the umpires who decide what's a ball and a strike depending on what mood they're in that day, or what their agenda is.

    Softl@w - Regarding your comment about Wakefield, you only need 4 starters in the playoffs and thus 11 pitchers. He's not one of the top 4 starters, and you don't need him coming out of the bullpen in the playoffs.

    Do you all need the Jim Mora clip about "playoffs" played for you.  With the Sox's schedule they're in a battle the rest of the way and this talk is arrogant and premature, please remember our heritage and our pain.
