Red Sox at Rays lineup: Kyle Kendrick tries to keep it going

With David Price out until at least April 15, the back of the rotation is suddenly important.

Yesterday belonged to Mitch Moreland and Steve Selsky, who each had a big hit in the 5-4 win over the Blue Jays. Neither of them will start today, with a top-heavy lineup set to go for today’s 1:05 game against the Rays (WEEI):

  1. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  2. Andrew Benintendi, LF
  3. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
  4. Mookie Betts, RF
  5. Pablo Sandoval, 3B
  6. Sam Travis, 1B
  7. Allen Craig, DH
  8. Blake Swihart, C
  9. Deven Marrero, SS

SP: Kyle Kendrick

Kendrick hopes to continue his solid spring, while Matt Andriese starts for Tampa.

Speaking of Matts, one hopes he has better TV opinions than the one who manages this site. You wouldn’t believe the trash I have to deal with as the assistant regional manager over here, and this is part of it.

Speaking of TV, though, what are your two favorite sitcoms (besides 30 Rock, which is your favorite)? Also, what do you think of today’s game? Get busy on both in the comments, or tell me I’m dumb here or at @bryanjoiner, where I might respond with a sad joke or two.
