SP Aaron Cook – 44.2 IP, 4 K, 4 BB, 8 HR, 5.24 ERA, 5.57 FIP, 4.66 xFIP

I think Pedroia and Aviles are going to have good games tonight. Not because of any surge in talent or advantage they may have against Darvish, but because the Rangers are starting Michael Young at shortstop. Young was moved off of short after the 2008 season because of his terrible range; by now, just about any ball that a decent shortstop would get to should go right past him. And as the season has shown, “just about any ball that a decent shortstop can get to” is all that the execrable Aviles and injured Pedroia can do at the plate.
