Rain delay fun

Our second delay of the night leads me to do some number crunching.
Mainly, on this fella right here:
Yes, that is Youk (I know you can't see his bald noggin, but it's under there)

Anyways, take a look at these here numbers.
Now, Youkilis was hit by a pitch 15 times in 2007.
So far this year he has only been hit once.

At this rate, Youk might get hit 6, maybe 7 times throughout the season. So what do we do?
Farnsworth him.

There are 13 games against the Red Socks for the rest of the year. If Farnsworth comes in at least half of those to face Youk, we will meet our quota.
If Joba comes in the other half and doesn't miss like he did last year, we will most likely double our profits of Youk's HBP.

I, for one, was shocked and appalled when we didn't hit Youk during the last series.

It's tradition, dammit.
