Red Sox Game 66 preview: Oh please don’t suck, Jon

Seriously. We have roughly zero reliable relievers available, and Farrell’s putting the two worst hitters on the roster in the starting lineup. So please, please, pleeeeeeease don’t suck.

1. CF Jacoby Ellsbury – .280/.350/.392 (.327 wOBA)
2. RF Shane Victorino – .283/.342/.362 (.314)
3. 2B Dustin Pedroia – .331/.416/.457 (.381)
4. DH David Ortiz – .314/.395/.623 (.425)
5. 1B Mike Napoli – .263/.347/.470 (.353)
6. LF Daniel Nava – .300/.396/.473 (.375)
7. SS Stephen Drew – .232/.325/.401 (.318)
8. C David Ross – .207/.303/.448 (.328)
9. 3B Jose Iglesias – .446/.494/.581 (.465)

SP Jon Lester – 85 IP, 69 K, 26 BB, 7 HR; 3.60 ERA (121 ERA+)
3.61 FIP, 3.79 xFIP, 4.22 tERA, 3.82 SIERA

  • Salty caught 14 innings last night. I’m totally fine with him having a day off.
  • You can even construct a rational argument that Middlebrooks being on the bench is fine: He just came off the DL, he went 1-7 and might need a mental break, Iglesias is super good at defense…fine.
  • Victorino’s in the lineup because…um…well, we gave him all that money, you see…
