There was, obviously, much talk about socks today in the pregame session with Terry Francona. But here are some of the discussion topics not related to socks or blood or the World Series.

There's no update on Coco who, when I asked how he was doing, responded with, "Perfect."

I remarked that, likely, if he were perfect, he probably would be in the lineup today.

His response?

"I don't know. You tell me."

Interesting. We'll probably get an update on his progress tomorrow in New York, after he sits out again tonight in favor of Wily Mo Pena in center field.

There was also some talk about Daisuke Matsuzaka's first start in Yankee Stadium and some talk about adjustments with him. There will be more on that in tomorrow's paper, I believe. Matsuzaka was headed off to New York this afternoon.

And, with that, the lineups...
