Series Preview #28: Red Sox (49-50) @ Yankees (59-39)
The Red Sox are limping right now as they've fallen a game below .500 and are 1-5 in their last six games. It doesn't look like things will be turning around anytime soon either, as they head into New York to take on the best team in baseball. In the first game tonight, we'll get a chance to see Aaron Cook (2-3/3.50/3) toe the rubber against Phil Hughes (9-8/4.09/102). Both of these pitches have done well lately and I'd say this should be a very close one, but I'll give the edge to the Red Sox. The next game will be a matchup of an "ace" and an ace as Jon Lester (5-8/5.46/100) and C.C. Sabathia (10-3/3.30/117) will be starting. A few years ago this would've been a close matchup, but right now, it's a Yankees win. Finally, we'll get to see rookie Felix Doubront (10-5/4.54/105) take on the big offseason signing in Hiroki Kuroda (10-7/3.34/103) on Sunday Night Baseball. This should be another win for the Yankees. Bold Prediction: Yankees win series 2-1.
