All of those errant pitches, foul tips, and other regular and post-season wear-and-tear has apparently taken it's toll on Bengie. B-Mo will DH tonight and protect Vlad in the fourth slot while his brother will call the signs to Wash and bat eighth.
What this means is that Rivera, (who is batting .500 vs. Buehrle), will be riding the pine tonight. Garret will be in his regular spot in left and will bat fifth.
Hopefully, this is nothing more than a simple case of Mike resting his star catcher. Bengie has a .333 average vs. Buehrle and is seeing the ball well lately, so he should provide Vlad with the protection he so desperately needs. J-Mo is 0-2 vs. the Sox starter, but who knows who will step up and be tonight's hero.
