The Orioles are probably gonna be a bit miffed at the Red Sox today

mystery man

The Orioles and Yankees are locked in pitched battle for the AL East. And this is the lineup the Red Sox are rolling out against the Yankees tonight:

Pedro Ciriaco, 2B
Daniel Nava LF
Cody Ross RF
Mauro Gomez 1B
Ryan Lavarnway DH
Jarrod Saltalamacchia C
Danny Valencia 3B
Che-Hsuan Lin CF
Jose Iglesias SS

Come to think of it, Clay Buchholz isn’t gonna be too pleased with it either.

    That’s really no different than the lineup they brought against the O’s that led to a sweep that has all but eliminated the Rays from the playoffs. If anyone should be miffed its them, but ultimately it’s your own fault if you find yourself relying on horrible teams like Boston to try to help you with playoff positioning.

      Except for their three best healthy hitters, Pedroia, Ellsbury and Ross.

    • ezthinking - Oct 1, 2012 at 4:45 PM

      Whoops missed Ross. I guess the Sox are going for it.

      Isnt anyone surprised the Orioles didnt want a little payback for the Orioles knocking them from the playoffs last year. Its like there actually rooting for them as their playing them cuz its better for the Sox than having the Yankees win again even though both have already made the playoffs.

      • dcfan4life - Oct 1, 2012 at 6:14 PM

        Course i mean the Red Sox wanting payback against the Orioles…

    Ya..who else exactly are they supposed to be putting out there?

    Please explain the point of this post. To me it has none other than to get
    page views with your attempt to create controversy.

      The Red Sox lineup is shitty.

      The End,

      Sincerely.

      The Management.

      Or are all 30-40 things we post a day supposed to be War and Peace?

        Nahh, Craig – it’s A Tale of Two Cities:
        It was the best of teams, it was the worst of teams…

    The Red Sox rolled over like a $5 hooker for the Orioles this past weekend. The Orioles shoud be grateful, except for that awful itch.

    • stlouis1baseball - Oct 1, 2012 at 4:44 PM

      Can a person even get a $5 hooker these days? Itch be damned!

    • proudlycanadian - Oct 1, 2012 at 5:18 PM

      So what do you know about $5 hookers indaberg?

      • indaburg - Oct 1, 2012 at 5:28 PM

        I’m as innocent as the driven snow.

      • proudlycanadian - Oct 1, 2012 at 5:35 PM

        I believe you 110% Snicker, snicker he says with fingers crossed.

  4. rje49 - Oct 1, 2012 at 4:45 PM

    How about last week, when the Sox had four starters batting in the .100’s against David Price? Has that ever happened before? Yeah, they lost that game.

  5. crankyfrankie - Oct 1, 2012 at 4:48 PM

    But what about the damage this will do to my fantasy teams pennant chances?

  6. bloodysock - Oct 1, 2012 at 4:58 PM

    The O’s are playing the PawSox with Salty and Ross on a rehab assignment.

  7. pinkfloydprism - Oct 1, 2012 at 5:11 PM

    Maybe if the Orioles won another game against NY they would not have to worry about it. Win your own games instead of relying on teams to do it for you.

    • Loose Changeup - Oct 1, 2012 at 5:33 PM

      The Orioles went 9-9 vs NYY, and 13-5 vs BOS. If the Yanks win out (as expected), they’ll go 13-5 vs. BOS. Both teams went 11-7 against Toronto.

      The Yankees went 8-10 vs TB. If the O’s lose out (not likely), they’ll go 9-9.

      So, Baltimore owns tiebreakers over New York thanks to having a better record in the division, they have 4 more AL East wins with 3 to go.

      • dondada10 - Oct 1, 2012 at 6:25 PM

        Facts are irrelevant to Yankees fans.

      • pinkfloydprism - Oct 1, 2012 at 7:39 PM

        are you going to break down each players WAR too?

      • pinkfloydprism - Oct 1, 2012 at 7:40 PM

        And please, I am not a Yankee fan.

  8. bloodysock - Oct 1, 2012 at 5:45 PM

    Those two teams are currently tied for the AL East lead with each winning nine of their 18 head to head games, and hte O’s holding a slight 92-90 runs scored advantage. I’d call that pretty even.

    Now if they could have won more at home against the Yankees, that would be a bit more relevant as they were 3-6 at home and 6-3 at Yankee Stadium.

  9. baseballisboring - Oct 1, 2012 at 6:33 PM

    It’s the same lineup they’ve been rolling out for the past few weeks, pretty much.

  10. poprox13 - Oct 1, 2012 at 6:53 PM

    Sox fans are pretty miffed too! Sitting Ells and starting Lin because CC is a lefty just goes to show you how stupid Booby V is!!

    • bloodysock - Oct 1, 2012 at 7:25 PM

      I didn’t need him sitting Ellsbury to know that.

  11. skeleteeth - Oct 1, 2012 at 8:05 PM

    Batting order means shit when the game is out of reach after the 4th. Or in the case of tonight’s game, midway through the second.

  12. thebigtim2012 - Oct 1, 2012 at 9:40 PM

    Speaking as a Boston fan no one cares about baseball here any more did u guys not see those Patriots last on Sunday it’s football season dammit!

  13. willclarkgameface - Oct 2, 2012 at 8:40 AM

    This was weak Bobby, I turned the game on during my ride home hoping to hear that the Red Sox were at least trying and all I heard were dejected announcers saying, “Well, it’s nine-nothing Yankees…”

    Jesus Christ. It was only the 2nd inning at that point. I understand that you have the worst record in franchise history since 1966, but I believe all your paychecks are still coming in and that means…i don’t know…TRY or something?

    I don’t why I should expect the Red Sox to actually care now after not giving a shit for 5 months of this season.

    The O’s, unfortunately, are on their own.

    Damn you Red Sox.
