Game 73: Yet more Red Sox vs. Rays

Deep in the darkest corners of Boston, there lurks--

Oh, wait, Aceves already went today. Game two then.

The bullpen is wiped, and I'm pretty sure many of you are as well. I know I am. But however bad the combination of Felix Doubront and a tired bullpen is, and however bad having Jonny Gomes in against a right feels--

Oh, right, the lineup:

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Shane Victorino, RF
  3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  4. David Ortiz, DH
  5. Daniel Nava, 1B
  6. Jonny Gomes, LF
  7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
  8. Stephen Drew, SS
  9. Jose Iglesias, 3B

Like I was saying, having Jonny Gomes in the lineup against a right-handed Jake Odorizzi seems pretty bad. But based on his first few performances this season, Odorizzi might not be ready for the majors just yet. Here's hoping--nothing like a big league to spare the bullpen.

Yes, I realize how that statement can be twisted about.

Go Sox!
