Red Sox
The Sox have ostensibly their three best pitchers - Daisuke Matsuzaka, 18-game winner Josh Beckett, and Curt Schilling - lined up to face the Yankees, just as they did in New York when they were swept. None of the three has good numbers against the Yankees this season: Matsuzaka is 2-1 with a 6.98 ERA, Schilling is 0-2 with a 5.76 ERA and has given up eight home runs in 25 innings, and Beckett is 1-1 with a 5.49 ERA.
