Unless something has changed since yesterday he is expected to be in the lineup tomorrow.One of the ways Francona significantly differs from Acta is that he will rest players with minor injuries and even rest them an extra day when he can because he doesn't want to risk aggravating an injury and having to lose even more time. Acta seemed more willing to let players work through minor injuries and when a player missed games to rush him back into the lineup.

Acta had scrap.I was offering what I think is a general philosophical difference. I could be wrong but even if Francona had Acta's roster I believe he would be more conservative with respect to injuries than Acta was.

No idea but the issue, obviously is if Swisher is not in RF you can't have Giambi and Reynolds in the lineup unless Reynolds is at 3B. IMHO No swisher in RF makes Giambi almost a complete non-player. It could be a more short term - don't play him in RF until he's 100% type thing.I don't want to read that into this move - which as others have said simply can be grabbing a guy on waives to fill a role in the short term until Bourn is back... I'm giving my hope - not necessarily what they'll do...Either wayOF depth is pretty thin - yah got three guys! (Brantley, Stubbs and Rabun!) while Swisher isn't playing any OF and Bourn out!move makes short term sense - deal with the LT when/if you have to.
