4/6/11: Indians vs. Red Sox

The Indians are going for win number three in a row tonight and look to send the Red Sox tumbling to an 0-5 start.  Here’s how the two teams will match up.  The Indians will use the same line up they have used every game so far this season.  Why mess with what’s been working?  On a related note, it’s nice to see Manny Acta sticking with one line up on a regular basis.  That was one thing about Eric Wedge that drove me nuts.  He was always plugging people in and out, especially early in the season.

Meanwhile, the Red Sox aren’t showing any panic.  Francona is going with the same line up as yesterday, but with Varitek doing the catching duties.  Good to see he’s so calm while the rest of Red Sox Nation freaks the hell out about being 0-4.
