Game Thread: Rays @ Red Sox -- September 6, 2010

New, comments

Good evening to those still with us.

It's Lestah time! Sure, the O's beat him up a little last time, but he struck guys out, so it's all good!


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - Jon Lester 15-8 27 27 2 0 0 0 176.0 145 70 64 12 65 186 3.27 1.19


Then there's this Niemann guy who's been kicked around the last few games.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - Jeff Niemann 10-5 24 24 1 1 0 0 149.2 136 67 66 21 49 107 3.97 1.24


But he should have a good shot at rebounding, because the Sox are employing the "surrender lineup." That's right, if you still have faith that this team is going to the postseason, well, you're even more optimistic than the Sox themselves.


Lineup

Tampa Bay Rays @ Boston Red Sox

09/06/10 7:10 PM EDT

Tampa Bay Rays Boston Red Sox
B.J. Upton - CF Daniel Nava - LF
Jason Bartlett - SS J.D. Drew - RF
Carl Crawford - LF Victor Martinez - C
Evan Longoria - 3B David Ortiz - DH
Carlos Pena - 1B Adrian Beltre - 3B
Sean Rodriguez - 2B Jed Lowrie - 2B
Rocco Baldelli - DH Ryan Kalish - CF
Ben Zobrist - RF Lars Anderson - 1B
Kelly Shoppach - C Yamaico Navarro - SS

At least it should be interesting, though. All four of those bottom guys are potentially big parts of the future.

Go Sox rookies! And Lowrie! And Lester! And the rest of them too I guess!

If Beltre hits 30 dingers and drives in 100, can he be some kind of Type-AA free agent maybe? Possibly? I know Elias likes that kind of stuff. And I like draft picks!
