    Fog and rain predicted, plus those two--definitely a pitching duel.

    Verlander's very good, but I'm hoping our very lefty lineup can hit even a good righty.

    I just hope the weather holds. Should be a great pitching matchup, though those things rarely seem to happen when we expect it.

    (I still remember the fuss over Clemens vs. Gooden in the '86 WS, Game Two I believe it was. Don't think either made it to the fifth).

    Was that game in the fog last night cool or what?  Especially for a pitchers duel like that.  Just added to the sense of forboding tension.

    Oh hell yeah!! It was hilarious when Salty's ball bounced off the wall you saw all those puddles on the warning track. I loved it!!
    Of course, had the Sox lost, I'd have complained about the game being played in those horrid conditions!

    For maybe the first time in my life I'm kind of hoping for a rain out.  Pushes the pitchers back a day, which means potentially one less start for Wake or Aceves and plus we got the Bruins to watch anyway tonight.

    If I believed in CERA, I would expect that if Salty was catching it would be another shutout. But I don't, and I expect Beckett to pitch into the 7th inning with 2 ER, 2BB, 7K's and one Passed Ball on Varitek.

    I recognize it could have been the ominous nature of fog, or the vodka I was consuming, or a combo platter of both, but Buchholz looked MEAN.  Like Wolverine mean.

    well, tonite they are saying a 50% chance of showers. last nite was much worse. I think that it will be clear enough for them to get it in. I think that Josh is gonna give the tigers one helluva run for their money. plus, verlander against alot of our lefties as has been stated is good odds. dare I say maybe gonzo or papi goes yard?

    let's just get a W huh gang!

    GO SOX

    though i have no dog in this fight, this is the kind of matchup you hope both guys are on..well for value purposes anyway..Tongue out...i guess a Sox or Tigger fan would hope their guy was just a bit better that night... but still,it's the kind you love to see...

    Sox are built to beat good righties.  Tonight will be a great test if the weather holds.

    well, the SOX didn't show much life with COKE;
    hopefully, VERLANDER doesn't bring his A game and BECKETT does.
    should be low scoring; 3-2 will be the winning score.
