Game 80: The Ugliest Of Lineups

New, comments

It's getting to be desperation time for the Red Sox, who are starting to wake up in the middle of the night after terrible nightmares of 0-6 and 2-10. They'll try and improve to at least 2-6 over their last 8 today when--

Oh dear God...

What is that?

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Darnell McDonald, RF
  3. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
  4. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
    Jason Varitek, C
  5. Josh Reddick, LF
  6. Drew Sutton, 3B
  7. Marco Scutaro, SS
  8. Jon Lester, P

Is that...is that our lineup?

I feel ill.

So please, Jon Lester, please. Be the stopper. Give us nine shutout innings. Let the one run this bunch maybe manages to push across against Cole Hamels be enough.
