Leyland Opts For Boesch To Start Against Chicago’s Floyd

For a manager who doesn’t like to talk about his lineups a lot, Jim Leyland sure talks about his lineups a lot.

Leyland gave a glimpse into his thinking Tuesday when he mulled over the reasons for choosing in favor of either Ryan Raburn, who hits right-handed, or Brennan Boesch, who hits left-handed, to go against White Sox right-hander Gavin Floyd on Wednesday night.

“The people that love the lineups are going to have a good time (Wednesday),” Leyland said. “They’ll have a ball, because I’ve got a real dilemma on my hands.”

Leyland ruled out Raburn even though he is 12-for-37 (.324) with two doubles and three RBI over his career against Floyd. Leyland said he believes Raburn’s right quad is still bothering him.
