Sox And Empire In Friday The 13th Showdown

How fitting. On Friday the 13th, the Red Sox and Evil Ones square off in a meaningless—yet meaningful—contest in Fort Myers. Earlier this week, the good guys outslugged the bad guys, but this Trixadexaphobian Throwdown seems bigger. The Carmine Hose will send out the following lineup at 7:05 PM ET: Mookie Betts CF, Dustin Pedroia 2B, David Ortiz DH, Hanley Ramirez LF, Pablo Sandoval 3B, Mike Napoli 1B, Daniel Nava RF, Xander Bogaerts SS, Ryan Hanigan C, and Rick Porcello RHP on the mound. The Bronx Embalmers will counter with: Ramon Flores RF, Chris Young CF, Garrett Jones 1B, Brian McCann DH, John Ryan Murphy C, Rob Refsnyder 2B, Slade Heathcott LF, Jonathan Galvez 3B, Nick Noonan SS, and Adam Warren RHP on the hill. No contest, right?
