    Prediction time! I say Sox sweep Yankees!

    What's your prediction?
    by Michael Hurley/NESN

    Friday night, I love the Red Sox' chances against Bartolo Colon (surprise, surprise), particularly with Jon Lester going for Boston. Of course, saying that, you know Colon's throwing a perfect game. I actually covered one of Colon's rehab starts in Pawtucket back in '08. If you told me that same guy could have a 3.30 ERA through 16 starts that year, I wouldn’t have believed you. But three years later? That's some sick joke.

    I obviously fear CC Sabathia on Saturday against John Lackey, who's been trouble this year (though he is 4-0 with a 3.41 ERA in his last five starts). However, there's reason for Boston to be optimistic: The Yankees are 18-3 when Sabathia pitches against teams from anywhere other than Boston this year, but he's 0-3 against the Sox. He's given up six runs in two of those starts, and he has a 6.16 ERA against Boston this year.

    Now, the other side says that, well, is he really going to throw three stinkers against the same team? Possible, I suppose, but my money would be on him having a classic CC game where he just rolls right through everyone.

    Then Sunday night, forget about it. Josh Beckett loves national television. He eats it up. Baseball-Reference.com needs to add "Fox or ESPN Game" to its split page. I guarantee Beckett might be the all-time leader. Maybe I made all that up, but it's a gut feeling.

    I have the Sox taking two of three.

    i really believe SLACKEY could dominate CC. sadly, it' s the CC that plays on  SLACKEY'S own team.

    thank you oh great theo for both SLACKEY and JD  CRAWFORD. your genius is known worldwide.

    that may be true for you KOJAK, but for fans who actually follow baseball, especially with saturday's match-up, it would be a big surprise.

    I am not expecting a sweep, but I hope that the Red Sox can win at least 2 games.

    When it comes to these teams, The OP always calls for a sweep.

     The Skankees have been crushing the ball and just swept Chicago on the road. I could live with 1-2; I'd be happy with 2-1; and shocked with 3-0.

    Sox take two out of three, and one of the wins is a walk-off, so it's close.

    Where was all that pitching that we thought we had?

    Dear God, be with our team tonight

    And for this series, let us fight

    To beat the Yanks and take the lead

    To spank some balls out to the green

    Forget about Tex and A-Rod

    Let A-Gon, Papi, Ells go yard!

    We know you love to hear the “YOOOOOUUK!”

    Help Lester erase pin-stripes, too

    (Please join me in my little prayer)

    Dear God, we know that You are fair

    And that You love the Red Sox best

    Like Bruins let the Sox be blessed,

    So let the laser show rock the Monster

    Please God, we ask.  Love, The Johnster.

    Ahh, something Sox and Yankee fans can agree on ... our hatred of Tim McCarver's commentary ...

    Who says hatred doesn't bring people together?!

    Looking at the match-ups, ideally the sox take 2 out of 3. CC has been fantastic this season, and will be very hard to beat. 


    So, taking that into account, being a hardcore sox fan... SWEEEP!

    LOL...I love how he likes lester in the Friday matchup but makes no mention of lester's 5.25 ERA against the Yanks this year. But then he's quick to point out CC's 6.16 ERA against the sawx.

    Maybe spc88 AKA mongo the fanboy is actually mike hurley.
