This is tonight's lineup for the Red Sox against CC Sabathia and the Yankees:

2B Pedro Ciriaco (.290)
LF Daniel Nava (.247)
RF Cody Ross (.269)
1B Mauro Gomez (.273)
DH Ryan Lavarnway (.170)
C Jarrod Saltalamacchia (.225)
3B Danny Valencia (.193)
CF Che-Hsuan Lin (.111)
SS Jose Iglesias (.123)

No Dustin Pedroia, who may have hurt his thumb on Sunday diving back into a bag on Sunday. No Jacoby Ellsbury, who did play the last two games of the Baltimore series. The lineup is even worse than it looks: Nava has hit .182 against lefties and Salty .180.

Congratulations, Red Sox, you have run out the worst lineup of 2012!

(By the way, be sure to read Gordon Edes' piece from Sunday on the managerial candidates to replace Bobby Valentine, once he's inevitably fired.)
