Plan C?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Sox are yet to face a left-handed starting pitcher in the regular season, but that will change, beginning Friday evening with the Twins in town.
Minnesota plans on starting southpaw R.A. Dickey in Game 1, following that up with Francisco Liriano on Saturday. With Chris Getz "leadoff-hitter-for-the-day'' on Thursday, manager Ozzie Guillen doesn't necessarily want the left-handed Getz to see those two arms - at least not in the leadoff spot.
So what then?
Plan C
"I might lead off Josh Fields,'' Guillen said. "Josh Fields is not a typical lead off guy, but he will get on base. He will give you good at bats. We've got a couple of options to see how that works.''
