Red Sox Face Tampa Bay Rays Today At 1:35PM

So far this Spring, your 2013 Carmine Hose are .500: five wins, five losses. Get used to it, Nation. All reasonable assessments of this team point to around 80 wins—a dramatic 11-game improvement over the 69 pathetic victories last year. Today's lineup makes you wonder whether your time might be better spent watching the WBC game between Australia and the Netherlands—at least Xander Bogaerts will be playing in that one. But then it dawned on us—as  usual—there is no television or radio coverage of today's Red Sox game. Anyway, here is the Sox lineup: Brock Holt, 2B; Pedro Ciriaco, 3B; Mike Carp, DH; Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C; Jonny Gomes, LF; Lyle Overbay, 1B; Ryan Sweeney, RF; Mitch Maier, CF; Jose Iglesias, SS. Use your imagination, folks!
