Manny at DH, Papi at 1B & Youklis in the OF somewhere?
They wouldn't do that on a regular basis. I could see it happening a few time over the rest of the year, but not too often. Plus, usually when Francona does something to the lineup to give someone rest, he benches all the good players on the same day so that we have no chance of winning, and Manny as DH, Papi at 1B, and Youk in the OF is too logical.
Yeah, it sure seems like that.
He's shown that he won't give Manny a rest at DH and put Ortiz at 1st. Maybe things change now with the injury.
