Coco's Return, Manny's Back (and Knee)

Lots of personnel notes today:

- Coco Crisp is batting leadoff and playing CF today for the Sox, which we've waited to say for about a month and a half now. Coco injured his finger sliding in the fifth game of the year, and today will be his first game at Fenway.

- Crisp was originally slated to hit sixth but was moved up to leadoff when Francona learned Manny would have to sit out another day with a knee issue. Youk is batting in Manny's clean-up spot. All reports say it's nothing serious with Manny.

- Timlin (shoulder) and Wily Mo (wrist) go on the DL, Delcarmen is in the bullpen.

Here's hoping Wake is ON today as the Sox go for the four-game sweep of the D-Rays. Yanks are up early on the Royals thanks to a John Damon homer.
