Red Sox Vs. Yankees Lineups: An ugly nine for Boston

The Red Sox will open their final series of the year Monday night as they take on the Yankees in New York. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.

Unfortunately for Sox fans, in this first game which they would like very much to win, they'll have to deal with a truly awful lineup bad even by current Red Sox standards. Featuring the awful 8-9 combination of Che-Hsuan Lin and Jose Iglesias, as well as the absence of both Dustin Pedroia and Jacoby Ellsbury, this is truly the worst we have seen out of the Red Sox this year. Perhaps even the worst the team has ever fielded.

  1. Pedro Ciriaco, 2B
  2. Daniel Nava, LF
