Brent Morel’s Birthday Game Lineup vs. Mariners


The Sox will send Philip Humber to the mound today to face off against Blake Beavan of the Mariners in a Fox Saturday afternoon game. Blake has had 2 starts so far this season and pitched well while Philip has also pitched well in 2012, but in only the one start.

Today’s Lineup:

1.De Aza – CF
2.Morel – 3B
3.Big Donkey – DH
4.Paulie – 1B
5.AJ – C
6.Rios – RF
7.Alexei – SS
8.Dayan – LF
9.Gordo – 2B

It’s Brent Morel’s birthday! In lieu of a gift I demand instead that he give us the gift of a 3 HR day. Yes, 3. I’m greedier than that little sick kid that asked Paul O’Neill for 2 homers in Seinfeld.

Hoping and expecting to see Humber go further into the game today and also hoping to see the struggling hitters build off of last night’s success. Beavan has never faced the Sox before so it will be a brand new look for our hitters. Just don’t hit it to Ackley, that seems to be key. Let’s stay away from .500 for a little bit, yes?
