Things aren’t great! The battered-by-Baltimore Bosox (73-57) take on the battered-by-baseball-Blue Jays (61-69, nice) north of the border tonight at 7:07 p.m. in a marquee pitching matchup: Drew Pomeranz (3.18 ERA) vs. Marcus Stroman (3.17 ERA). On the offensive side -- emphases on offensive — Hanley Ramirez has been dropped to seventh in the batting order due to his prolonged slump, and Brock Holt \o/ is back in the outfield again, so mentally prepare yourself for all that comes with that. The Sox really will be okay, but a loss tonight wouldn’t exactly just roll off the shoulder, either. Big game! Here are the full lineups:
