We're 19 games into the season, six games behind a studly Rays team in the AL East (4.5 behind the Yanks), and we're rolling out a Triple A type lineup tonight:
I know a lot of it is out of Tito's control, but still, I never thought a 170 million dollar payroll could look similar to the Pirates lineup.
Some additional numbers to consider as you watch the Bruins instead of the Sox tonight:
-Adrian Beltre leads the team with a .286 average (with 0 taters)
-Pedey leads the team with 5 taters (Tek is alone in second with 4)
-Pedey also leads the team with 13 RBI
-Buchholz has the best era at 2.70
-The Sox are on pace to give up 1892 stolen bases (ok, that's not true, but they're going to shatter the record either way).
-The defensive upgrades of Scutaro and Beltre already have three errors a piece
-The Sox are 5-8 at friendly Fenway
-I'll end it with some optimism....Lars Anderson is currently batting .328 with 5 taters and 18 rbi for Portland
Go Bruins, I mean, Go Sox...
