The Orioles are probably gonna be a bit miffed at the Red Sox today

28 Comments

The Orioles and Yankees are locked in pitched battle for the AL East. And this is the lineup the Red Sox are rolling out against the Yankees tonight:

Pedro Ciriaco, 2B
Daniel Nava LF
Cody Ross RF
Mauro Gomez 1B
Ryan Lavarnway DH
Jarrod Saltalamacchia C
Danny Valencia 3B
Che-Hsuan Lin CF
Jose Iglesias SS

Come to think of it, Clay Buchholz isn’t gonna be too pleased with it either.

Angels sign Chris Young to one-year deal

The Angels went on a Chris binge yesterday. In addition to signing Chris Carter to a minor league deal they signed Chris Young — the outfielder Chris Young, not the pitcher Chris Young — to a one-year contract. Young will make $2 million with incentives that could make the pact more valuable.

Young, 34, hit .235/.322/.387 with seven home runs in a part-time role last season with the Red Sox. He’s historically been a plus defender and has handled all three outfield positions in the past, but he’s really a corner guy/platoon DH these days. Not that the Angels need a center fielder. Rumor has it that they have a pretty decent one.
