Laughter In The Dark: Good Matchups
Boston Red Sox: 3 @ TOR; 3 vs. BAL. Last week, I pumped up the Yankees, and they responded with a few huge offensive outputs. This week, it's Boston's turn. The Sox get to face two pitching staffs that are banged up and have pretty big question marks, from Victor Zambrano to Dustin McGowan, from Jeremy Guthrie to Brian Burres. Sure, they'll probably face Roy Halladay, but they'll miss Erik Bedard.
Chicago Cubs: 3 vs. PIT; 3 @ PHI. The Pirates' pitching has cooled after a torrid start and has a 1.48 WHIP for the season, third-worst in the National League. The Phillies are only slightly better, at 1.44, and I'm of the opinion that the Jon Lieber Express is due for a derailment.
