Lyle Overbay To DH Today Against Twinkies

The Red Sox lineup for today's game against the Minnesota Twins includes Lyle Overbay at the DH spot. The other notable player in the lineup is Jose Iglesias at shortstop—with the continued absence of Stephen Drew. Ryan Dempster will get the start against Boston's Mayor's Cup rivals. Here is the full Red Sox lineup: Ellsbury CF, Nava LF,  Pedroia 2B, Napoli,1B, Middlebrooks 3B, Overbay DH, Gomes RF, Ross C, Iglesias SS. Game time is 1:05 EDT. As usual, the Red Sox are providing no television or radio coverage of the game. So, white smoke, Red Sox win; black smoke, Red Sox lose. Welcome to the Middles Ages.
