'Cuban Missle' Off-Target?: Not In Sox Lineup

Apparently, new Red Sox OF Yoenis Cespedes—AKA 'The Cuban Missle'—has not yet landed in Boston. Or, if he has, he's not 'suited-up, ready to roll' tonight against The Evil Empire. The Red Sox will be sending out the following extremely odd line-up tonight:  Brock Holt RF, Dustin Pedroia 2B, David Ortiz DH, Mike Napoli 1B, Allen Craig LF, Xander Bogaerts SS, Will Middlebrooks 3B, David Ross C, and Mookie Betts CF. New Jersey native Anthony Ranaudo will get his first MLB start against his hometown Bronx Embalmers.
