IT'S THE SIN OF OMMISSION THAT'LL KILL YA:

Big Papi at first, Youkilis to bench as Red Sox deal with NL rules (AP, 10/26/07)

David Ortiz will play first base for Boston when the World Series resumes Saturday night, and Kevin Youkilis will be benched as the Red Sox adjust to life without a designated hitter.

Mike Lowell will remain at third for the Red Sox, who have a 2-0 Series lead against the Colorado Rockies.


You could really rest them for one game apiece and it wouldn't make a lick of difference which alignment you had. The more interesting decision is to play Manny in LF for three games in Colorado where he could be a horror show.

Rockies horror show, eh? I get the picture.

I still remember Manny's flubs and flailings in Game 1 of the 2004 WS. Had that been Game 7, and a Boston loss, he would have never been able to play in Fenway again.
