    Interesting Scutaro would be inserted in this series. One thru six better tear the cover off!

    Re: Tuesday Game Thread Red Sox at Yankees Lester vs. Garcia

    Yankees have been playing well, Sox have been wobbling with the sweep at the hands of the White Sox and the weak performances against the weaker team A's in Boston.

    Both teams have the top offenses in baseball, as usual, so it will come down to the quality of the pitching and defense behind the pitching, and the execution of the fundamentals on offensive execution with RISP.

    Garcia is a retread who has a decent early quarter. Lester has not had his best form of late. One game does not make a trend, but the Red Sox have a slight probability advantage because of the starting pitchers.

    Game 2  This will be Wastfield's first real test, and he has the benefit of being babied like the old man he is. He hasn't pitched much this year, and will have a full week off since his last marginal outing where he hit a batter and gave up 7 hits and one walk and a homer in 6 innings and a 98 pitch outing.

    AJ has been fair since his embarrassing 2010, and the Yankees most certainly are the significant probability favorites in this matchup. A better move would be to DL Wakefield and give the start to Doubrant, a lefty in a lefty hitters paradise.

    Game 3 Beckett and CC  slight probability advantage to the Yankees, and this game will probably be the tipping point in this 3 game series outcome. Despite Beckett's strong form against the Yankees this year, his form has not been quite as shart of late.

    Red Sox have a strong 5-1 early advantage in this critical year long series, and will need to take at least one to maintain that strong advantage. Because the Red Sox only need to win one to only lose a single game to the Yankees in the standings, yet still maitain the upper hand on this season long series, there is plenty of extra pressure riding on the Yankees to sweep this series. 

    The Red Sox have strong lefty hitting in a lefty paradise, so I like the Red Sox to win 2 out of 3 with some timely long balls to the little league porch. All lefty hitters need to pad their homer totals on this visit, as even a scatback can dink one into that short porch.

    The key is to take the first game. Removes the biggest anxiety factor. The fear of being swept. Puts the pressure squarely on the Yankees.  Will certainly need more from Lester than he has been showing recently.

    AB, Lowrie has been playing with a sore shoulder, out of necessity. now that scutaro has been cleared to play, lowrie can recover.

    Anyone have internet links for the game for those blacked out??

    Will certainly need more from the pen, than recently.

    I think Game 2 is the most important. The winner of that game is more likely to win Game 3, which is kind of a toss up because of the starters.

    Bottom line, games are played one at a time, not two or three at a time. First things first, win tonight and forget about tomorrow until tomorrow. If a loss, tonight, forget about yesterday and focus on today. Mental toughness does matter, and starts with the manager. Tito is better at this than most, and I'm not a big fan of Tito, overall.

    Hope Lester gets his act together tonight. He's due. We need to get some length out of him tonight. An early lead would be nice as well.

    Lest we forget, it was the insertion of Lowrie into the lineup that sparked the team's turnaround from its 2-10 start.  Scutaro runs up more 0-2 counts than anyone I've ever seen play ball.  Hopefully he comes out swinging tonight.
