Red Sox vs. Orioles lineups: Grill’em

The Red Sox finish up their five-game series the Orioles behind Rich Hill tonight at Fenway Park.

MLB: Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox
Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

It is Memorial Day and I don’t want to write this bit, so please enjoy the lineups after this passage from Moby-Dick:

Hark ye yet again- the little lower layer. All visible objects, man, are but as pasteboard masks. But in each event- in the living act, the undoubted deed- there, some unknown but still reasoning thing puts forth the mouldings of its features from behind the unreasoning mask. If man will strike, strike though the mask! How can the prisoner reach outside except by thrusting through the wall? To me, the white whale is that wall, shoved near to me. Sometimes I think there’s naught beyond. But ‘tis enough. He tasks me; he heaps me; I see in him outrageous strength, with an inscrutable malice sinewing it. That inscrutable thing is chiefly what I hate; and be the white whale agent, or be the white whale principal, I will wreak that hate upon him. Talk not to me of blasphemy, man; I’d strike the sun if it insulted me. For could the sun do that, then could I do the other; since there is ever a sort of fair play herein, jealousy presiding over all creations.
