Josh Beckett, RHP (0-1, 9.64 ERA)

Dating back to last season, the Yanks have now won 8 of the last 10 meetings against their hated arch rival.

Beckett is a lifetime 4-3, 6.56 ERA in 8 starts against the Yanks, including 2-1, 4.39 ERA in 4 starts in 2007.

Moose is a lifetime 19-15, 3.66 ERA in 55 starts against the Red Sox, but he was really hammered in 2007 (0-1, 9.26 ERA in 2 starts).

Yanks career numbers vs. Beckett can be viewed here. Red Sox career numbers vs. Moose can beviewed here.

Finally, here's a mind-boggling tidbit through the first 11 games of 2008; the Yanks are 0-5 when allowing more than 2 runs. No pressure, Moose.
