Game 137 • Red Sox at White Sox • 2 PM

Baseball Reference Preview

BOS: Josh Beckett 3.87 ERA, 122 ERA+
CHW: Mark Buehrle 3.86 ERA, 121 ERA+

This looks like it could be quite the pitcher's duel. I hope it lives up to it.

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. Victor Martinez, 1B
4. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
5. Jason Bay, LF
6. Mike Lowell, DH
7. Rocco Baldelli, RF
8. Jason Varitek, C
9. Alex Gonzalez, SS

***

The Yankees and Rangers both lost yesterday. That puts Boston 7.5 GB the Yankees for the East and puts Texas 3 GB of us for the wildcard.

New York plays a doubleheader today against Tampa Bay in the Bronx.

1:00 • Rays at Yankees • Garza v. Sabathia
6:00 • Rangers at Indians • Hunter v. Carrasco
7:00 • Rays at Yankees • Sonnanstine v. Burnett

I'm definitely pulling for a pitchers' duel. Losing this game 1-0 wouldn't be a disaster if it meant that Beckett had turned the corner. It's hard to imagine us winning a postseason series with him pitching like he has been.

I am not happy at all that it seems as though 2 good games in a row is asking too much these days.
We gotta get a groove going. I'm not panicked or anything, we've still got a few weeks to get this train on track. But we need to get it moving soon.
That light at the end of the tunnel......etc

:) How true. I just finished commenting on Q's site that I want to have Lester's children.
