And now, for a change of pace, baseball.

Also changing, as per usual, the Red Sox lineup:


Lineup

BOSTON RED SOX LOS ANGELES ANGELS
Pedro Ciriaco, 3B Mike Trout, CF
Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Torii Hunter, RF
Dustin Pedroia, 2B Howard Kendrick, 2B
Adrian Gonzalez, DH Mark Trumbo, 1B
Cody Ross, RF Alberto Callaspo, 3B
Ryan Lavarnway, C Kendrys Morales, DH
Mauro Gomez, 1B Erick Aybar, SS
Mike Aviles, SS Vernon Wells, LF
Scott Podsednik, LF Chris Iannetta, C

It's another big shuffle to questionable ends. Scott Podsednik and Pedro Ciriaco are both still in the lineup, but have switched places at the extreme ends of the lineup. Adrian Gonzalez is still being kept at the cleanup spot in order to facilitate Ciriaco's placement at the leadoff spot. Mauro Gomez is playing first as Gonzalez plays the DH.

It's hard to care to much at this point, what order they line up in, but it's still confusing trying to make sense of it all.
