Let's get behind this stinkin' rotten team right now!

Nomar to sit (and other news): Per manager Terry Francona on WEEI's Dale & Neumy, Nomar ("he's playing great") will sit out tonight and Mark Bellhorn may replace him at shortstop. "He's been pushing it, he's been pushing it. He needed a day off yesterday and he didn't get it. So he's going to get it tonight. Then we'll play him in the day game tomorrow and we'll kind of go from there." Francona also indicated that Pokey Reese is set to go on the 15 day DL (MRI today). Tito would not commit to naming a starter for game one of Thursday's double header until after tonight's game. On Kentucky Fried: "He was such a key part of this ballclub last year and I don't think you can just forget that... but at the same time, our job is to put the best team out there every day and sometimes you have to sit people that have done well in the past... a lot of is going to depend on how he swings the bat." On the team's lousy play: "Yelling and screaming and making an ass out of myself is not going to make us play any better... we need to string rallys together like we did yesterday, and not rely on home runs."
