These Red Sox and Yankees lineups just don't look right.


Lineup


Maybe in another year the Yankees would look better, but not so much in this one. Aside from Robinson Cano, there's no really scary bat in there. Alex Rodriguez and Andruw Jones are old, Nick Swisher is floundering, Curtis Granderson's one great year has proven to be something of an aberration, and Russell Martin is a shadow of his old self.

And yet, they still score runs. Maybe it's to do with depth, or some sort of deal with the devil, but the Yankees are second only to the Rangers in scoring.

The Red Sox used to be right up there with them. And if only thanks to the old lineup, they still are on some level. But now, this lineup is just ineffective. They don't score runs, simple as that. Still, it's what we have, and for these next three games we can only hope that it works.
