Red Sox vs. Mets lineup: Rick Porcello has the advantage

Last night, the Mets had the upper hand on the mound. Today, it’s the Sox.

The Red Sox (101-47), who are good but were bad last night, look to get back in the win column versus the pesky Mets (69-78) this afternoon at Fenway Park (4:05 p.m., NESN, MLBN out-of-network). Since I have been constitutionally unable to get the lineups exactly right — and have had them fixed by my editor — I’m going to scale things back today so that there are no mistakes therein. Fine-tuning for the playoffs or something. On the field, it’s Rick Porcello (16-7, 4.24 ERA) versus Corey Oswalt (3-2, 6.62 WRA), which looks like a mismatch. Hopefully the Sox can make it one. Here are the actual, honest-to-God lineups:
