In the Citi — Red Sox vs. Mets
I’m at the brand-new Citi Field, a very nice facility, for tonight’s Red Sox-Mets game. Too bad the weather isn’t nicer, but the pouring rain from earlier this afternoon is now down to a drizzle.
Yes, this place — as you might have guessed — is far nicer than Shea Stadium.
As for tonight’s lineup, Kevin Youkilis was scratched because he is sick. Chris Carter will fill in at first.
The lineup is Ellsbury-Pedroia-Ortiz-Drew-Bay-Lowell-Carter-Lowrie-Varitek.
