Red Sox vs. Orioles lineup: Grill ‘em, Weber

Ryan Weber looks to put the Sox back over .500.

Yesterday’s game was bad. Martín Pérez couldn’t do anything, laying bare the flimsiness of Boston’s two-starter (with one injured!) project. That flimsiness continues into today, when Ryan Weber takes the mound for the series finale against the Orioles at 1:35 p.m. 2020 really is something else.

Speaking of! I found out I get NESN. In suburban New York that is rare and convenient, as MLB.tv and I are having some beef. What is less rare and decidedly inconvenient is that it’s a Red Sox games-free version, likely due to rights issues.

In a rare stroke of good news, Xander Bogaerts is back in the lineup after yesterday’s hard-earned off day. He’ll face lefty Wade LeBlanc, who should be as scary to the Sox as Weber is to the Orioles: not very! Andrew Benintendi, against a lefty, will not face LeBlanc. José Peraza leads off in his stead.

I’m at the beach. Enjoy the game!
