Will Ellsbury Play This Week?
There is plenty to play for down the stretch for the AL East champs Red Sox. Two games in Colorado and three in Baltimore - win all of them and you've got a 100-win season.
That's just one item on the agenda in the last week of the season...
- A magic number of 5 to wrap up best record in the AL(any combination of Sox wins and Oakland losses).
- Can Jacoby Ellsbury play some innings and get a handful of at bats heading into the playoffs.
- Clay Buchholz gets one more tune-up start...healthy enough?
- Bullpen roles...bullpen roles...bullpen roles...
- David Ortiz is one shy of 30 home runs. He also closing in on 100 RBI.
