I really hope for Lind he has a real coming home party and bashes the ball tonight. He could use the confidence boost and you know the guys would rally around him.

I can't see why he wouldn't be. Need to take advantage of his momentum. You don't want to sit him down and possibly cool him off.

Agreed.

Also, i'm not happy to see Francisco back. Would much rather have Snider/Davis platooning in LF.

Yeah I'm not really too interested in seeing Francisco stick around. I'm hoping AA can find him a new home for cash considerations. I don't think there is much value to platooning Snider and Davis though. As others have mentioned once Davis slows down which is very likely I think we'll see Snider get called up.

This is just my view of things right now. I know Davis has been hitting well, but I think AA is keeping Snider down in AAA to keep his value stable in prep for a trade. If he brings him up, and falters, there goes his value to a certain extent. If he's not AFTER the trade deadline, I'll be very surprised. From everything I've heard AA say the last few weeks, it sounds as if he's trying to make something happen via trade.

As for Francisco, I've said from the beginning of the season that he's a waste of a roster spot. A very 'meh' acquisition.

Francisco was on a rehab stint, they have to bring him back at this point. It's not just a call-up like Snider would be.

yeah I never really understood bringing in Francisco. As to your point about Snider. It's kind of a catch 22. If AA took the chance and did call him up and he went of the type of tear we've seen from him in the past he could potentially increase his value. I'd rather lose him for less having given him another chance to succeed here then trade him for something marginal and see him explode somewhere else.

Watch Farrell stick Lind back in the middle of the order again. Actually I would be ok with that as long as he does not hit cleanup

I'd actually like to see him hit at number 5 just after EE.

There is no chance he hits anywhere near the top 4. He may hit 5th because Johnson and Escobar haven't exactly hit that well there however. I'd probably have him hit 7th or 8th though.

Farrel wouldn't mess with the 1-2 punch of Jose/EE that's been working so well. I'd expect to see him hit 5th tonight.

Tonight's Lineup:

The return of Lindy!....oh wait.

lawrie
rasmus
bautista
encarnacion
johnson
escobar
davis
francisco (dh)
arencibia

What is this, I don't even.....

So we bring him up while he's hot and bench him against lefties. Gotchya, that should help his confidence.

Don't go with the guy hitting just under .400 in AAA at DH go with the guy hitting under .200 in AA. Farrell infuriates me sometimes.

I asked some BJ reporters if the reason he's not playing is because he couldn't get to the park in time. With no response as of yet. Because that's the only logical reason I could think of for not putting him in the lineup against the bashing sox.

There is a lefty pitching and Lind is an automatic out against that.

Apparently thunder showers are rolling through the Boston area tonight. Good chance the game is delayed or postponed.
