A-Gon on Big Show: Break hurt timing

Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez stopped by for a visit with The Big Show at Fenway Park Wednesday afternoon, as he prepared for the third game of the Sox' series with the Royals.

Gonzalez fell off his torrid power pace after the All-Star break, and there was some speculation that his participation in the All-Star Home Run Derby may have affected his swing. Gonzalez said that wasn't the case.

"No, not at all," he said. "I know my swing pretty well. If you go watch me in BP, I can still do everything I was doing before. My timing was thrown off a little bit, more by the break, more by the two days off. After that, just trying to get back into it.

"I've been swinging the bat well lately, hitting the ball hard, just not getting it up in the air as much as I would want to. But when you're getting hits, you can't try to change anything. You can't try to elevate the ball, because when you start trying to do things like...

Lineup: Crawford sits, Youkilis back

The Red Sox will play host to the Royals in the third game of a four-game series at Fenway Park Wednesday night. The teams have split the first two games of the series. The Royals won 3-1 in a marathon 14 inning game Monday night, while the Red Sox took last night's game 13-9.

After sitting out last night's ballgame, Kevin Youkilis is back in the lineup tonight and batting in his usual cleanup spot. Carl Crawford will sit out tonight's game and Yamaico Navarro will make his second straight start, this time in left field. He played third base last night. Darnell McDonald will get the start in right field and bat in the No. 9 spot, giving Josh Reddick a night off.

John Lackey will take to the mound for the Red Sox as he looks to earn his fourth win a row.

Tito on Big Show: A 'fine line' with Miller

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said on The Big Show Wednesday that it was a fine line between performance and potential with pitcher Andrew Miller who has made it out of the fifth inning just once in his last four starts.

"There's a lot to like about this kid and certainly we're walking a fine line between now, the future and what he can do [and] performance," Francona said. "The saving grace is we're 6-1 in his starts. I understand what's going on, we're in our bullpen a lot and things like that. There's a lot to like about this kid. I think [pitching coach] Curt Young thinks this guy is going to be in our rotation next year. It's something to think about."

Francona added that it was a tough call to make because the Sox like his upside.  "I know at times he needs to be better and I think he realizes that," Francona said. "At the same time if you panic or lose confidence a little bit early you...
