Red Sox Game 28 preview: Hoooooooooooooo!

“Hacksaw” Mike Napoli is apparently a thing. I am totally cool with that.

1. CF Jacoby Ellsbury – .280/.331/.407
2. LF Jonny Gomes – .182/.357/.295
3. 2B Dustin Pedroia – .330/.434/.388
4. DH Mike Napoli – .287/.342/.602
5. RF Daniel Nava – .296/.385/.531
6. 3B Will Middlebrooks – .206/.241/.422
7. 1B Mike Carp – .480/.519/1.080
8. C David Ross – .235/.257/.529
9. SS Stephen Drew – .193/.292/.333

SP Ryan Dempster – 30 IP, 43 K, 14 BB, 4 HR; 3.30 ERA, 3.29 FIP, 2.85 xFIP

Sucks that Ortiz has to sit, but with the rest of the guys hitting well it makes sense to get him regular rest and hopefully keep him fresh going forward. Also, word is that Shane Victorino is expected to play tomorrow, which will make nine days since his initial injury. And of course, guys who sit for more than a week and then come back with no rehab games or anything like that are always at top condition and don’t have timing issues or anything.

Can you tell that I’m really struggling to find things to complain about?

    If you want to complain, just whip out some nerd stats and say the team isn’t living up to or is overperforming them.

    I see you used xFIP, that’s a good start.
