Red Sox ST Battles

The Red Sox are a team with hardly any battles. Now that the Red Sox chose Julio Lugo over Jed Lowrie, they really don't need too many other things to decide.

5th OF of 8th bullpen man: Brad Wilkerson vs. Billy Traber vs. Fernando Cabrera     I have to go with Wilkerson here so they have someone to backup first base. Traber will come up at some point

Notable players not on roster: Nick Green, Billy Traber, Fernando Cabrera, Wes Littleton, Marcus McBeth, Enrique Gonzalez, Devern Hansack, Jeff Bailey, Chris Carter, Lars Anderson, Jonathon Van Every, Paul McAnulty, Ivan Ochoa, Gil A. Velazquez, Chip Ambres, George Kottaras

Out until early June: John Smoltz

Out until early May: Mark Kotsay
