Red Sox vs. Rangers lineups: When it rains…

The Sox look to overcome an embarrassing Saturday performance as the August from hell continues.

The Red Sox look to take the series against the lowly Rangers this afternoon behind Nathan Eovaldi (1:10 p.m., NESN, MLBN-out-of-network).

Truth be told I assumed this game would get rained out too so I didn’t prepare and now I’m at the library on my phone. In lieu of game info, here is first part Hamlet’s first soliloquy, which I love and which represents the general state of emotion around these parts. The spacing is all wrong but what are you gonna do?

O, that this too too solid flesh would melt

Thaw and resolve itself into a dew!

Or that the Everlasting had not fix’d

His canon ‘gainst self-slaughter!

O God! God!

How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable, Seem to me all the uses of this world!

Fie on’t! ah fie! ‘tis an unweeded garden,

That grows to seed; things rank and gross in nature

Possess it merely.

That it should come to this!

How did Shakespeare know?! That’s why he’s the best! Anyhow Eovaldi faces off with lefty Kolby Allard. Here are the full lineups:
