Red Sox Game 86 preview: Come back, Jenny

There are shallow, superficial reasons to want Jenny Dell back (not that Jamie Erdahl isn’t cute in her own right), but the reason for my plea today is much more noble: With her taking a vacation, I had to go to Peter Abraham’s Twitter to get the starting lineup today. PETE ABE. Unacceptable!

1. CF Jacoby Ellsbury – .299/.362/.406 (.337 wOBA)
2. RF Shane Victorino – .286/.335/.386 (.318)
3. 2B Dustin Pedroia – .321/.404/.441 (.370)
4. DH David Ortiz – .320/.406/.607 (.420)
5. LF Daniel Nava – .285/.375/.441 (.355)
6. 1B Mike Carp – .310/.373/.646 (.428)
7. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia – .260/.331/.449 (.340)
8. 3B Brandon Snyder – .333/.333/.556 (.378)
9. SS Jose Iglesias – .415/.459/.533 (.431)

SP Jon Lester – 107.1 IP, 88 K, 39 BB, 13 HR; 4.61 ERA (94 ERA+)
4.23 FIP, 4.01 xFIP, 4.64 tERA, 4.04 SIERA

  • PeteAbe also insinuated that Mike Napoli’s hurt, which would make sense because he hasn’t hit for power over the last two months and is getting regular rest. It wouldn’t be stunning. I also don’t see anyone wishing the Red Sox had given him that monstrously stupid 3/39 contract right about now.
  • Speaking of hurt: The Stephen Drew DL Watch hits Day 5.
  • OTHER NEWS AROUND THE WORLD: Noted wife-beater, general asshole and destroyer of baseballs Manny Ramirez signed a minor league deal with the Rangers, because the Rangers are smart. I hope he mashes all the dingers in the world and then Ron Washington pinch hits for him and the Rangers lose the World Series.
  • Also, the Patriots have a new logo. The simplicity is nice, I suppose, but I fear that it’s supposed to be INTENSE and MANLY or some other bullshit like that.
