“"The one thing I'll say is there are a lot of guys here who are hurt and supporting the team," Youkilis added. "We wish Jacoby was here supporting us, too." "There are a lot of guys, it's not just Jacoby," Youkilis added. "There are a lot of guys we need back in this lineup right now. I don't know what's going on with Jacoby. I don't think any of us really know. There are a lot of guys here that we need back, but until then we have guys in place to help us try to win ballgames." Currently the Red Sox have 11 players on the DL, including Ellsbury, Josh Beckett, Jeremy Hermida, Mike Lowell, Dustin Pedroia, Victor Martinez, Manny Delcarmen, Jason Varitek and Clay Buchholz. Jed Lowrie and Junichi Tazawa are also on the DL. With so many starters out, the Red Sox are still trying to win until everyone is healthy. "Healthy? Hurt we can make a legitimate run," Youkilis said. "We're going out there tonight and trying to make a run. We're going to try to win ballgames and, hey, we've been out a lot more games than we are now. We've got a chance." Joe McDonald covers the Bruins and Red Sox for ESPNBoston.com.
