Sox Home Opener vs Ms

Recommended Posts

Mariners are 7-1. Kikuchi starting for them, Lopez for us. I am cautiously optimistic about this one, but hopefully this will be a good showing for the fans.

Also, weird lineup today.

Leury, Anderson, Abreu, Castillo, Moncada, Eloy, Yonder, Rondon, Engel is the starting lineup. 

1:10 central start time.

Go Sox!

That lineup is like looking at those eye illusion tricks.

It looks like it was picked out of a hat. I would honestly keep Yoan in the 2-spot (even against lefties) until he has a stretch where he looks awful.

Wish Cordell had gotten the start instead of Engel

Would have preferred:

Leury 2B, Moncada 3B, Abreu 1B, Eloy LF, Castillo C, Anderson SS, Rondon DH, Cordell 9, Engel 8

What does Cordell need to do to get a start?  Sox don't seem to be too concerned about limiting Alonso's PA with him starting against LH starter.

11:10 AM start here, what's it your time like 9:10 PM start?

If nothing else it's nice to have only one obvious butcher in the field with Eloy.  Would love to see Lopez come out at 94-96 and get some strikeouts.

I think England is like 6 hours ahead, so 7:10 perhaps?

Why such a poor and strange lineup, none of our batter have even faced this pitcher before. Batters arent going to know their roles. Why is Yonder way down in the lineup? 

Does Ricky make these lineups or is he pushed by someone else? Just wondering?

Alonso is down because he sucks vs. LHP, but Palka sucks worse vs. LHP so that is why Alonso is in the lineup.

Yonder is a career .232 hitter vs. Lefties. There is something though about leaving a player in the same lineup spot so he knows his role,

On second thought, Ricky is really playing the lefty righty matchups well. Lets hope Yonder can get it going vs. Lefties so he can be moved up into a normalized spot at 4 or 5.

I'd really like it if Moncada stopped getting bounced around like that.  It does mess with your routine/rhythm.

Thats true too and a good point. Even if he can slash singles, walk, and steal batting right handed in the #2 spot would benefit him.

The lineup is fine.  It's the 25 man roster that needs work.

If Colome and Herrera are solid, and Fry/Ruiz emerge as solid bullpen pieces, you can squint and see a contender. This whole division is down right now. They should jump on it.

The division stinks that's for sure.  It's too bad they blew that game against the Royals it would be nice to be 3-2 right now.

I'm glad they brought Ruiz up looking at this stats last year in AA and reading some about his work this spring he should be an asset as a swing man to get to Colome and Herrera.

83 wins might be enough this season. They blew game 1 vs. Cleveland BTW. They never led in either of the 1st two games.

That lineup is horrid. This would have been much better IMO

Anderson

Moncada

Abreu

Eloy

Castillo

Alonso

Rondon

Sanchez

Engel

It's not horrid. Everyone wants Sanchez benched but you would rather have him in over Garcia? Come on

Hope everyone is excited for Alonso’s return next year! 

But in all seriousness, this could just be Ricky showing off our big offseason in front of the opening day crowd.  I’ll start getting concerned if he’s in the lineup against the next LH starter.
