Today's Lineups

Brock Holt - 1B Michael Bourn - CF
Xander Bogaerts - 3B Asdrubal Cabrera - SS
Dustin Pedroia - 2B Michael Brantley - LF
David Ortiz - DH Jason Kipnis - 2B
A.J. Pierzynski - C Lonnie Chisenhall - 1B
Grady Sizemore - RF David Murphy - RF
Stephen Drew - SS Yan Gomes - C
Daniel Nava - LF Jason Giambi - DH
Jackie Bradley - CF Mike Aviles - 3B
Brandon Workman - RHP Corey Kluber - RHP

There's not much more we can say about Corey Kluber at this point, other than robot puns and jokes about lacking human emotion. Speaking of lacking, BOOOOO Grady Sizemore returns to the Boston lineup to face summary execution at the hands of the Klubot. As for the rest of the Boston lineup - has there ever been a more hate-able 3-4-5 combo than PEDroia, Ortiz, and Pyrfkhdouchegfahrvsdfgski? I'm hard pressed to think of one.

Meanwhile, our 3-4-5 (Smooth Kipenhall) looks poised to put a hurtin' on whoever Brandon Workman is.

Let's go, Tribe!
