King Felix vs. Chris Sale, 5:10pm

Happy Felix Day! The King would want you to enjoy today’s game exuberantly, but also with an eye towards safety in this heat.

Last night’s loss hurts, particularly with this brutal stretch of opposing starters coming up. Chris Sale’s K rate is down noticeably since last year, but an improvement in the Sox team defense has done wonders for his BABIP, his Achilles’ heel last year.

1: Martin, CF
2: Heredia, LF
3: Cano, 2B
4: Cruz, DH
5: Zunino, C
6: Gutierrez, RF

    Diaz yeah! And was that Seager at 3B or nah? ;-)

    And, we have a backup 3rd baseman! No, that wasn’t Seager. Also, why keep Sale in that long? Are they trying to wear him out?

    I love how Aoki is a defensive replacement.

    Aoki just got optioned.

    I watched the game after the fact on MLB.tv. Felix looked great! But he had me a little worried early on, with the limping and all…
