Here is tonight’s starting line-up:
1. Brock Holt (L) 1B
2. Xander Bogaerts (R) 3B
3. Dustin Pedroia (R) 2B
4. David Ortiz (L) DH
5. Jonny Gomes (R) LF
6. A.J. Pierzynski (L) C
7. Grady Sizemore (L) RF
8. Jonathan Herrera (S) SS
9. Jackie Bradley Jr. (L) CF
SP Rubby De La Rosa (R) (1-0, 0.00 ERA)
If you’re wondering where Stephen Drew (aka The Savior) is, join the club. Drew joined the big club Monday, didn’t play Tuesday, played Wednesday, had an off day yesterday, and will ride the bench again. To date, he has contributed a 0.0 batting average and three strike outs.
I will continue to blame this signing for every bad thing that happens to the Red Sox. And at what point do we start criticizing John Farrell for the crapfest of line-ups he’s been tossing out there?
All eyes on Rubby De La Rosa to see if he can have a second great start.
