The Red Sox head to Toronto Buffalo to play the Blue Jays, usually of Toronto, at the fan-friendly hour of 6:37 p.m. tonight behind lefty Kyle Hart.

Chase Anderson will start for the not-Sabres, which means the normal dance of the Red Sox regulars around the lineup for the righty. Christian Vázquez, who the Red Sox should not trade, bats sixth.

Meanwhile the Blue Jays, the officially team of big boys, does not disappoint. These aren’t your ten cent wings. Unfortunately we only get Vlad Jr. out of the Vlad/Rowdy Tellez/Dan Vogelbach troika, but one might be enough. Here are the full lineups:
