'Nuff said.

No? It's not. Okay, fine then.

The Red Sox are up against the Royals tonight in a battle between the unstoppable force and the entirely movable object. We're talking leaves in the wind. A paper boat in the middle of a storm. The Orioles pitching staff.

Ok, not quite the last one, but still, pretty close. Need an example? Try this fine specimen on for size:

That man right there will have to take on this lineup:

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  3. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
  4. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
  5. David Ortiz, DH
  6. Carl Crawford, LF
  7. Josh Reddick, RF
  8. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
  9. Marco Scutaro, SS

Yeah, so that isn't too likely to go well.


Now that I've thoroughly jinxed this mismatch by calling it just that, there's only one thing to say:


Go Sox!
