Francona Decides To Sit Youk

According to Rotoworld, the Boston Red Sox have decided on playing David Ortiz at first base, sitting Kevin Youkilis for Game 3 tonight. Quite a big decision, especially as Youkilis is batting .396 with 4HR and 10RBI in the postseason. If I had the pleasure of being the manager of the Red Sox, I would of decided to sit right-fielder J.D. Drew and play Youkilis in his spot, but Terry didn't that that route.

Will be interesting to see both how Ortiz fairs at first, and how Manny Ramirez will play left-field in a very spacious park when it comes to left-field depth. Josh Fogg vs. Daisuke Matsuzaka in Game 3 at 8:35 eastern tonight.
