Red Sox vs. Mets lineup: Baseball back

Our long national nightmare is, if not over, a temporary afterthought.

MLB: Boston Red Sox-Workouts
Swag on a hundred thousand trillion

The Red Sox play the Mets today at 1 p.m. in their Lega Pompelmo opener. Friends, Romans, countrymen, you may rejoice. Here’s the Red Sox lineup:

  1. Brock Holt, SS
  2. Andrew Benintendi, LF
  3. Hanley Ramírez, DH
  4. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
  5. Bryce Brentz, RF
  6. Marco Hernández, 2B
  7. Sandy León, C
  8. Allen Craig, 1B
  9. Josh Rutledge, 3B

SP: Henry Owens

The hitting’s good, as is the hair, but none of it holds a candle to the Allen Craig experience. It’s real to me, dammit. I was born for this.

The Mets counter with:

  1. Juan Lagares, CF
  2. T.J. Rivera, 3B
  3. Michael Conforto, RF
  4. Wilmer Flores, 1B
  5. Travis d'Arnaud, C
  6. Brandon Nimmo, LF
  7. Kevin Plawecki, DH
  8. Gavin Cecchini, 2B
  9. Matt Reynolds, SS

SP: It’s a mystery!

Nice to see the former Sox-in-law Cecchini in there. Let’s get it on.
