Itl'' be ok.  Leury and Collins are going a combined 10-10, with 4 homers and 3 doubles.  

Only? Tired of the negativity on this board.

Playing the Righty/Lefty match-ups is entirely legit and appropriate, especially considering that Collins has hit RH pitching pretty well.

This might work tonight. If it does, will those who criticize the move by TLaR admit they were wrong?

I don't think anyone is concerned with the lineup for this particular game. It's just an odd choice, and would be pretty silly to have Vaughn up and not regularly playing.

What about Collins?   Would it also be silly to not have him hitting against a RH pitcher after the Spring he has had?

Again, let's see how this works out and then discuss whether or not it was a decent move and what you would have done.

This is going to be a long year here..

Even if it works for today, it still feels really dirty to call the kid up and not play him on his first opening day. Play matchups tomorrow. If the kid's a starter, let him hear his name get announced on opening day.

Vaughn in LF unless you think he can't play there, Collins either catching or DHing. If that's your lineup, let the guys have their opening day moment.

Vaughn cannot play LF. That is why he won't be out there tonight.

Good lord.  If some of these guys were as mentally weak as the board wants them to be they'd never get out of bed in the morning.  Vaughn will be fine.  He's made of sterner stuff than you and I, thankfully.  Most pro athletes are.

Then he shouldn't be on the active roster.

Exactly anyone who can be negative on opening day with this talented team is probably a troll who everyone hates. No reason to be anything other than excited for tonight

Vaughn is most likely ecstatic he made the OD roster. I think he'll be okay. 

He's just here for the Big League Putang.

I think rosters have to be set in 15 minutes. Somebody may have to get dropped from the 40-man. 

May have been an hour off. Probably will see a press release soon, and they’ll update the roster page.

To be fair, it is between Garcia and Vaughn in LF. Vaughn could play left and Collins DH. I'm okay with the lineup for tonight, but if Collins is playing over Vaughn because we are facing a RHP, there won't be much playing time for Vaughn.

If Vaughn cannot play left, Sox offense has some serious trouble.  Leury got 600 PA’s in 2019 and was a big reason they finished below .500.  I desperately want to believe that Engel can be an average offensive player, but there is scant evidence.  Vaughn in left, Collins/Yermin platoon is the best solution offensively with late game defensive replacements.
