Red Sox complete Wagner deal

The Red Sox sent minor-league catcher Eddie Lora to the Mets as one of the two players to be named in the deal for reliever Billy Wagner. Lora, 20, hit .222 with a .287 OBP, .414 slugging and three homers for the Rookie Level Gulf Coast League Red Sox. He was the Sox' Latin Program Player of the Year in 2008, when he hit .300 with a .455 OBP and .492 slugging in the Dominican Summer League (before going 0-for-32 upon a promotion to the GCL last year).
 
The Sox will also send first baseman/outfielder Chris Carter to the Mets as the second player to be named in the deal, but because a team claimed Carter on waivers, he cannot be sent to New York until after the conclusion of the regular season.

Justin Tuggle starts at QB for Boston College

 After spending most of camp trying to who determine who will be the starting quarterback for Boston College in the season opener against Northeastern today, first year head coach Frank Spaziani has chosen Justin Tuggle to take the first snaps under center. It is likely that true freshman Mike Marscovetra and 25 year old freshman Dave Shinskie will see time at the position as Spaziani separates the trio on the depth chart. Tuggle's first play of his college career was a handoff to running back Montel Harris who broke it for a 48-yard touchdown. Junior Alex Dulski will be taking his first snaps as the starting quarterback for Huskies.

Martinez to catch Wakefield

Victor Martinez will catch Tim Wakefield on Saturday, repeating a partnership that proved enormously successful on Aug. 26, when Wakefield tossed seven innings and allowed one run with Martinez behind the plate. Martinez used a first baseman's glove that day, and did not commit a single passed ball or allow any wild pitches.
 
Mike Lowell will return to the lineup for the Sox, and Nick Green gets the start at shortstop, his first start since Aug. 19.
 
For the White Sox, Scott Podsednik is in the lineup as a leadoff hitter. He was not in the lineup the last time that the White Sox faced Tim Wakefield. The speedy Podsednik was viewed as the biggest Chicago threat to test Tim Wakefield's agility through bunts.
