Lineup Card Rockies vs Red Sox

I wrote a rebuttal (kind of) to Woody Paige's article that appeared in the Denver Post this morning.  Check that out over at Bugs & Cranks.

In other news... Welcome back Huston Street!

Rockies Lineup (36-33)

  • 3B Herrera
  • 1B Helton
  • CF Gonzalez
  • LF Spilborghs
  • RF Hawpe
  • C  Olivo
  • 2B Barmes
  • SS Nelson
  • P   Chacin

Red Sox Lineup (43-28)

  • SS Scutaro
  • 2B Pedroia
  • C  Martinez
  • 1B Youkilis
  • 3B Beltre
  • RF Nava
  • CF Cameron
  • LF Reddick
  • P   Lester
This is a far less intimidating lineup than the one we saw in the 2007 World Series.  That said, there's still fire power, especially in the middle.  Chacin will need to do a better job or trusting his pitches and commanding his pitches if he wants to stick around past 4-5 innings.
