Always remember and never forget: Jeff Francoeur hit a three-run homer against the Red Sox last night.

Tonight's game against the Red Sox is filled with meaning. Tonight's game decides which team will exit the first series of 2015 with a winning record. SO MUCH MEANING, GUYS.

No matter what, the Red Sox will leave Philadelphia having been beaten by Aaron Harang and Jeff Francoeur. Those are facts that cannot be erased from the history. They will have to live with that FOREVER, HA HA HA HA HA! I mean, look at Francoeur up there. He's such a goober.

Today's Lineups

BOSTON RED SOX PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Mookie Betts - CF Ben Revere - CF
Dustin Pedroia - 2B Carlos Ruiz - C
David Ortiz - 1B Chase Utley - 2B
Hanley Ramirez - LF Ryan Howard - 1B
Pablo Sandoval - 3B Darin Ruf - LF
Shane Victorino - RF Cody Asche - 3B
Ryan Hanigan - C Jeff Francoeur - RF
Xander Bogaerts - SS Freddy Galvis - SS
Justin Masterson - RHP David Buchanan - RHP

David Buchanan will make his 2015 debut tonight against Justin Masterson and the Red Sox. Carlos Ruiz, who had himself a night hitting in the two spot last night, returns to the same position this evening. Jeff Francoeur is back in right field, because why the hell not. He hit a three-run bomb last night, I guess he's earned another chance. I DARE YOU TO DO IT AGAIN, FRENCHY! God, I enjoy hating on Jeff Francoeur way too much.
