Kevin Youkilis's absence from the lineup is the only anomaly today. Other than that, pretty normal, with J.D. Drew back in the leadoff spot.

"If I'm ready to play I'll play," Youkilis said. "A lot of it's not in my hands, either. I'd be lying to you if I said I had an answer."

Youkilis is taking batting practice today, and said he could pinch hit if he needs to. He added that, though his footrace with Dustin Pedroia should probably be on hold, he could likely still beat the second baseman.

Nothing like confidence and a good faux feud to liven up the clubhouse.
