0Take heart, my friends, because this has to be better, doesn't it? We can't get worse than 18-3, can we? The Rangers can't do any--

Oh...

Please no...

Josh Beckett, please don't suck. Bullpen, please don't suck. Lineup, please hit Holland. He's a lefty. We've got guys who can hit those, right?

Cody Ross is hitting cleanup, because he hits lefties and it's maybe worth mixing things up. I'm pretty indifferent on this one, especially with Ryan Sweeney available to pinch hit.
