Here's today's Sox' lineup against Kevin Brown and the Yankees:

Damon CF
Mueller 3B
Ortiz DH
Ramirez LF
Varitek C

Ok, so far, so good. Here's where the train goes badly off the rails:

McCarty 1B
Crespo 2B
Kapler RF
Reese SS

Top that off with No. 5 starter Bronson Arroyo on the hill, and you get a recipe for a quick, painless Yankee victory.

Oh, and as I type this, the bad guys have already plated 3 and have runners on 1st and 2nd with one out in the top of the 2nd. Neat. Well, I said I'd be happy with a split, especially given the depleted nature of the Sox' lineup, so I'll have to be happy with a split.
