Lineups for First of a Double Dip with the Indians


Well I’m just not sure what to make of it. After spending 4 days completely disconnected with any news I come back to not only a 3 game deficit to the Indians but also news that Chris Sale is no longer a starter. This isn’t a good thing. 5 quality starters are necessary to a successful team. Fortunately the Sox are looking at a few chances to close that gap in Cleveland, beginning with a doubleheader today. Feel free to peruse game one’s lineup while I throw a temper tantrum over recent events.

1. De Aza – CF
2. Lillibridge – 3B
3. Dunn – DH
4. Paulie – 1B
5. AJ – C
6. Rios – RF
7. Alexei – SS
8. Fukudome – LF
9. Gordo – 2B

Philip Humber will pitch against Zach “Don’t call me Kevin” McAllister. When the day is out the Sox could potentially be just one game out. You can’t get a return like that every day.
