The Red Sox are trying something new on Thursday night, which seems to be a recurring theme for the squad as they wind down the season.
Pedro Ciriaco is going to give center field a whirl while Mike Aviles mans third base, as Bobby Valentine tries his players in some unusual spots to see what they can handle. Meanwhile, Rays pitcher David Price will be waiting on the mound, and the Sox will need some offense to match to their defense to win this one.
NESN Nation's Dan Duquette has some ideas about why the Red Sox are mixing things up. See more in the above video.
