The positions aren't ideal, but we are too short to fold 88 with only 5bb imo and a single big stacked raiser, so this seems like an easy all in to me. The presence of the big stack should serve to protect us from action behind, and while I don't expect much if any fold equity over his 2-x open, 88 plays fine against his range.
