Red Sox vs Mariners lineups: Jacoby Ellsbury missing, outfield defense terrible

Rob Carr

The Red Sox will have the worst defensive outfield ever tonight. So that's fun.

Jon Lester better not allow any fly balls. Because if he does...

Boston Red Sox (54-36)

  1. Daniel Nava, CF
  2. Jonny Gomes, RF
  3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  4. David Ortiz, DH
  5. Mike Napoli, 1B
  6. Mike Carp, LF
  7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
  8. Jose Iglesias, SS
  9. Brock Holt, 3B

Starting Pitcher -- Jon Lester

So that's just about the worst defensive outfield you'll ever see. Shockingly, shockingly awful. Anything in the air is going to be dangerous. Period.

But that's just fine, right? After all, the Red Sox just need to score a bunch of runs against...

Seattle Mariners (39-49)

  1. Brad Miller, SS
  2. Nick Franklin, 2B
  3. Raul Ibanez, LF
  4. Kendrys Morales, DH
  5. Kyle Seager, 3B
  6. Jason Bay, RF
  7. Justin Smoak, 1B
  8. Mike Zunino, C
  9. Michael Saunders, CF

Starting Pitcher -- Felix Hernandez

Oh...well, nevermind then.

Did we really have to face Felix the day after the traditional West Coast offensive death game? Because it feels like poor timing to me.
