Today’s lineup is like... I dunno, a miniature horse?

When ur happy 2 b here

The good news from yesterday’s 6-5 loss to the Phillies was that Pablo Sandoval hit a home run, continuing his hot sport. Skadoosh. The bad news was that Craig Kimbrel got knocked the fugg out. For all our worries about David Price, I’m far more worried about Kimbrel, who strikes me as less theoretically replaceable than Price. My solution: He should give up fewer runs. Nailed it.

Today’s lineup is a solid second-team effort from start to finish, save for Andrew Benintendi. It’s no dog, but it’s no pony, either.

  1. Brock Holt, SS \o/
  2. Josh Rutledge, 2B
  3. Andrew Benintendi, CF
  4. Allen Craig, 1B
  5. Mitch Moreland, DH
  6. Bryce Brentz, LF
  7. Rusney Castillo, RF
  8. Rafael Devers, 3B
  9. Christian Vazquez, C

J.A. Happ starts for the Blue Jays as he looks to build on his career year. If he does, we will have to take the computer’s word for it. It would appear that this game is not being broadcast on the radio or television by anyone. Your move, Drellich.
