Who are these guys?

Where was tonight's starting line-up of the Boston Red Sox playing at the start of this season.

1. Coco Crisp: Boston Red Sox starting CF
2. Alex Cora: Boston Red Sox bench player
3. Mark Loretta: Boston Red Sox starting 2B
4. Kevin Youkilis: Boston Red Sox starting 1B
5. Eric Hinske: Toronto Blue Jays bench player
6. Mike Lowell: Boston Red Sox starting 3B
7. Carlos Pena: released by the Detroit Tigers, signed minor league deal with NY Yankees
8. Doug Mirabelli: San Diego Padres backup catcher
9. Dustin Pedroia: Pawtucket Red Sox starting SS (AAA affiliate for the Red Sox)

So in tonight's game, the Sox are starting 4 of the original 9 players from Opening Day 2006. Missing are Jason Varitek (15 day DL), Trot Nixon (15 day DL), Manny Ramirez (day to day with a knee injury), Alex Gonzalez (15 day DL), and Big Papi (out indefinitely with heart abnormalities).

We are gonna need a miracle to catch the $198 million dollar Yankees but Sox fans its time to get out the old saying. "We Believe!"

The Yankies worth is only that much due to salaries. The Sox value far exceeds that based on the heart and soul of the fans!!
