The rivalry continues as Yanks try to put a dent in the standings at Fenway this weekend with Wang, Moose, and Pettitte countering Wakefield, Schilling, and Beckett.

There was a time when the Yanks struggled against Tim Wakefield, but they have knocked him around pretty hard in 2007 (0-2,  7.84) while hitting .326 against him.  Wakefield's overall career numbers against the Yanks are not especially good (9-15,  4.26).
