Update: looks like Reimold to DL with C Luis Exposito on the field in O's uniform right now getting hugs from his old Boston teammates per Encina.

Good, hope Reimold gets right and returns to form, nothing worse than watching a guy try to gut it out through an injury and either not do well or things get worse.

They broke Nova's streak now maybe they can break Lester's. 14-0 (I think), man he owns them.

Interested to see Middlebrooks, apparently he is the future at 3B for the Sox.

That lineup looks weird, he flipped Pedrioa and Gonzalez? Guess Bobby V is trying to shake things up, Gonzalez has not been so good thus far (or at least not his usual self).

O's lineup: I wondered who they'd put in LF against a Lefty with no Reimold. Here's your answer
Andino 2B
Hardy SS
Markakis RF
Jones CF
Wieters DH
Betemit LF
Davis 1B
Reynolds 3B
Paulino C
Not Bruce Chen P

Everything I've read says Middlebrooks is a fringe starter at best. They will look to get a star to be their 3B in 2013 IMO

Wieters DH'ing, with the off day yesterday hopefully will catch both sat and sun games.

Betemit in left and Reynolds at third, keep your fingers crossed.

Oh really? Well good then. I didn't look into it too much, just looked at his minor league stats and read something in either the Herald or Globe.

Can these O's beat Lester ?

Though he wasn't the Pitcher of record he was the Starting Pitcher for the Final Game last year.
And of course this is their first meeting since.
2009 is the International Year of Astronomy
Have you looked through a telescope this year ?

Saturday October 24, 2009 is Astronomy Day.
Consider visiting a local astronomy club/astronomical society, planetarium, or observatory to take a look at the sky through a telescope.

Beat him? Hell I'll be happy with a no decision, like the last they faced him which if you recall was the game where they iced the collapse.

Sox will be extra pumped for this game after watching the O's celebrate knocking them out of the hunt last year, and Lester owns them. I'll say 6-2 Red Sox, with Andino getting hit at some point in the game.
The kids are alright.

Please. Our feathery fists of fury will lay waste to these preposterous pretenders in their pink hats and will send their Bandwagon Nation scurrying to the Celtics game by 9 PM

Really? I guess it helps Nick but any MLB outfielder alive should catch that ball. The whole way errors are assessed seems so silly. No wonder the sabermetrics guys came up with all those other stats.

Conflicting reports that the O's have signed Tejada. Some say it's from a fake twitter account others like Jim Duquette say its true.
