Sure, the Sox are the Champs. But Friday back up catcher Doug Mirabelli hit the 15 day DL. Saturday, shrewd handicappers laid down on rookie Atlanta picther Davies at +145 armed with some very reliable information.

Knuckleballer Tim Wakefield gives All Star catcher Jason Varitek fits. This is the sole purpose for Mirabelli's place on the Boston roster. Every fifth day Mirabeli uses the force and spends a game tracking the unpredictable knucklers coming his way.

Sure enough, in the top of the fifth Marcus Giles waltzed home on a Wakefield wild picth. This kicked off a four run fifth that proved to make the difference in a 7-5 Braves triumph.

Here's recommending that players watch the Boston situation carefully as solid returns can be obtained going against them until Mirabelli returns.
