One day, two philosophers were sitting in an empty Progressive field. One proposed a question: "If the Red Sox win a game, and nobody is watching because it's on at noon on a Thursday, did they really win a game at all?"
"I reject your premise," replied the other philosopher. "The Red Sox win? That's just ridiculous!"
Same lineup as on Tuesday for the Red Sox:
1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Carl Crawford, LF
3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
4. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
5. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
6. David Ortiz, DH
7. J.D. Drew, RF
8. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
9. Marco Scutaro, SS
The Indians present a slightly different look, however:
1. Orlando Cabrera, 2B
2. Asdrubal Cabrera, SS
3. Shin-Soo Choo, RF
4. Carlos Santana, C
5. Shelley Duncan, DH
6. Austin Kearns, LF
7. Matt LaPorta, 1B
8. Travis Buck, CF
9. Adam Everett, 3B
Your starters will be:
That is not the most flattering picture of young Jon in the world...
|2011 - Jon Lester||0-0||1||1||0||0||0||0||5.1||6||5||5||3||1||0||8.44||1.31|
But it looks better than that.
So, what pitcher will the Sox be making into a Cy Young candidate today?
Oh, Fausto Carmona? Well, that's not so bad. I mean, he had a pretty good season in 2010 and--
|2011 - Fausto Carmona||0-1||1||1||0||0||0||0||3.0||11||10||10||2||1||5||30.00||4.00|
Oh. Oh dear. We've gotta hit this guy, right? Right?
Come on Sox, please! I don't care if I can't see it! We just. Need. A. Win.
