Red Sox vs. Braves: Meanwhile, in America

The regular season is underway!

...But not for us. Not for another week, at least. No, we back here in America have to make do with more of these spring doldrums.

Oh well, if we can't have real baseball, at least we can have a largely real lineup:

Boston Red Sox (8-13)

  1. Daniel Nava, 1B
  2. Shane Victorino, RF
  3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  4. Mike Napoli, DH
  5. A.J. Pierzynski, C
  6. Xander Bogaerts, SS
  7. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
  8. Will Middlebrooks, 3B
  9. Corey Brown, LF

Starting Pitcher -- John Lackey

Atlanta Braves (8-16)

  1. Jordan Schafer, CF
  2. Andrelton Simmons, SS
  3. Freddie Freeman, 1B
  4. Chris Johnson, 3B
  5. Dan Uggla, 2B
  6. Ryan Doumit, C
  7. Joey Terdoslavich, RF
  8. Jose Constanza, LF
  9. Alex Wood, P

Well, would you look at that? One team using a DH, the other letting the pitcher hit in a game that doesn't matter. What a novel concept! Who ever would've thought?
