Friday Red Sox Lineup: Matt Wieters Out, Also A Father

The Red Sox won't have any Matt Wieters to deal with tonight, but the world has one more Wieters to deal with for the future. The Orioles' catcher will miss the game for all the right reasons as he attends to his wife and newborn son, Maverick Luther Wieters.

Man, that's...quite the name.

Anyways, that will leave Taylor Teagarden behind the plate and batting ninth, which is more interesting news than there is to be found for the Red Sox. Jacoby Ellsbury is still out and, I'd wager, likely done for the season given how little time is left. It's ugly, but that's just standard for the Sox these days.
