Last night, Francona was cautiously optimistic that Jacoby Ellsbury would be in tonight's lineup against the Blue Jays. The injury's been described as a mild high-ankle sprain on the left leg. The good news is, it doesn't seem like a DL sort of injury.

The Red Sox could only ride the 23 year old, ex-Japanese Industrial League arm of Junichi Tazawa so long before things got messy. Last night he allowed 9 runs off 10 hits in 4 innings. It was without a doubt his worst outing.
The good news is that Nick Green can pitch, or so it seems. 2 no-hit innings. Although he did walk 3.
The 9-5 scoreline is deceptively close, as it was 9-2 White Sox going into the bottom of the 8th.
Now the Blue Jays come to town. Josh Beckett opposes Scott Richmond Friday night.
