Sweet Fancy Moses on a Popsicle Stick

This is the lineup the AL East-leading and defending World Champion Boston Red Sox are running out against the Devil Rays this afternoon:

Johnny Damon CF
Edgar Renteria SS
David Ortiz DH
John Olerud 1B
Bill Mueller 3B
Kevin Millar LF
Doug Mirabelli C
Alex Cora 2B
Adam Stern RF

Holy Mary, Mother of God. I think the D-Rays lineup may be stronger. Nixon on the DL. Manny with the day off - I guess. Varitek not playing because Wakefield is pitching - and apparently has to throw a shutout to have a hope of winning. Wow.

--- Update ---

This Murdered Row has gone 0-for-9 with 5 k's against Ray starter Seth McClung. Seth McClung.

--- Update, The Sequel ---

In the top of the 5th, Alex Cora homered and Doug Mirabelli stole a base. Find a warm body and get your last lovemaking on, because if that's not a sign of the Apocalypse, then I'm the Archangel Gabriel.
