thank you, gahd... !

Santana to the Mets means a stronger Sox line-up with Jacoby Ellsbury at the top, followed either by Dustin Pedroia or Kevin Youkilis, likely the former, while Youk follows Manny or Mike Lowell -- like, ooooo!

Keeping Lester is a good thing. Heavy duty baseball people have been saying he's quite possibly the #2 starter in waiting for the Sox. Julian Tavares even went so far as to call him the next Sandy Koufax. But then Tavares is the guy who roles his throws to 1st base. Weirdling!

So, le'me see. '08 Line-up:

1) Jacoby Ellsbury - CF
2) Dustin Pedroia - 2B
3) David Ortiz - DH
4) Manny Ramirez - LF
5) Mike Lowell - 3B
6) J.D. Drew - RF
7) Kevin Youkilis - 1B
8) Jason Varitek - C
9) Julio Lugo - SS

1) Josh Beckett
2) Curt Schilling
3) Daisuke Matsusaka
4) Clay Buchholz
5) Jon Lester
6) Tim Wakefield

I can live with that.
