The brackets have been revealed and Round 1 voting is now in progress in Boston.com's Greatest Red Sox Ever Tournament.

Just like the NCAA Tournament, this contest matches up 64 players in a bracket-style game, and the real fun is in the matchups we'll encounter on the way. First-round voting ends at noon Wednesday, when second-round voting begins.

Review the matchups and cast your votes. Among the more intriguing first-round battles are Jonathan Papelbon vs. Bob Stanley; Dick Radatz vs. Rico Petrocellli; Joe Cronin vs. Josh Beckett; Jason varitek vs. Derek Lowe; and Dennis Eckersley vs. Mo Vaughn.

Our favorite, though, is Curt Schilling vs. Bill Lee.

The top seeds are Ted Williams in the Yawkey Division, Carl Yastrzemski in the Impossible Dream Division, Roger Clemens in the Cowboy Up Division and Pedro Martinez in the Monster Division.

Care to leave a comment on any particular matchup? Click on the division tabs at the top of the bracket and rant away.

Let the games begin. We'll provide updates and reminders as each round concludes.
