If I were a betting man, I'd wager Tuesday will feature the 24th outfield, with Ross activated and in right, Kalish in center, a selection from Nava/McDonald/Podsednik in LF.

I would bet instead on Kalish to AAA (as Ross is activated). Then Nava in LF, Ross in CF, DMac in RF (assuming Pods is unavailble).

LF-Ross, CF-Kalish, RF-Gonzalez, with Youkilis at 1B

Hey! You were right! Unfortunately, I don't have any prizes... just fistfuls of confetti.

They stated last night on TV the Sox have used the most OF's and the most combo's in the league (which was basically a 'no duh' moment). For comparison's sake I would like to know how many different OF and OF combo's the next couple closest teams have used. How far above and beyond have they gone?

Probably a new combo tommorow, too, with Nava and Kalish both starting against a RHP.

I'll do my best to keep this updated as the season progresses.
