Red Sox at A’s lineup: Still undefeated on Wednesdays, my dudes

New, comments

It is not time to panic. It is time to watch the Red Sox beat the A’s.

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Oakland Athletics
C’mon Jackie. Do it to ‘em.

You wanna feel old? Opening Day was six days ago. This cold streak will end, hopefully starting tonight, but until then all we can do is curse the early season West Coast road trip with the most vigorous energy we can spare after staying up to watch these gut-punchers. At the very least,


The news tonight, for tonight’s 10 p.m. game, if there is any, is that Xander Bogaerts is out tonight, with Brock Holt filling in at shortstop, with Bogey left to rue his triple-that-wasn’t (at least he’s got a new pile of money on which to sleep). The A’s start old Sox nemesis Marco Estrada, but otherwise roll out the same collection of guys they have used to frustrate us to this point, albeit in a slightly different order. This one, specifically:
