Red Sox vs. Indians lineups: Jackie Bradley Jr.'s turn to sit

I'm going to assume the goal is now actively to lose games and improve draft position. That's how I'll keep my sanity. For a week.

Sorry, Jackie, but nothing can be allowed to stop the circus.

Jackie Bradley Jr. will sit out Tuesday night as the Red Sox send Eduardo Rodriguez to the mound against the Cleveland Indians.

Jose Ramirez - 2B Mookie Betts - CF
Francisco Lindor - SS Brock Holt - 2B
Michael Brantley - DH Xander Bogaerts - SS
Carlos Santana - 1B David Ortiz - DH
Ryan Raburn - LF Hanley Ramirez - LF
Roberto Perez - C Pablo Sandoval - 3B
Abraham Almonte - CF Travis Shaw - 1B
Jerry Sands - RF Rusney Castillo - RF
Mike Aviles - 3B Blake Swihart - C
Trevor Bauer - RHP Eduardo Rodriguez - LHP

Suffice it to say that everything I said about yesterday's lineup holds true today. Reiterating the Hanley stuff for the millionth time isn't terribly productive, though I'm sure I'll get around to it again before long. The only difference today is that we've got yet another miserable left field performance in his book to show that, no, it's neither getting better, nor acceptable. Which, y'know, what I said yesterday, so I've already gone back on that.

Oh well, at least it got us this:

First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. ET with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.
