Game 7 Preview: Yankees at Red Sox

The Yankees have started the season well, while our rivals to the north have sputtered.

But the Red Sox are a potent team with a deep and talented rotation, a three headed bullpen monster that rivals anyone in the league, and a lineup with 4 or 5 MVP candidates and rounded out by All Stars.

Hughes' career against the Red Sox: 2-3, 4.97ERA, 13G, 6GS, 38.0IP, 1.421 WHIP

Lackey's career against the Yankees:6-8, 4.43ERA, 19G, 19GS, 122.0IP, 1.484 WHIP

Two starters with WHIPs in the 1.4s, on a cold day at Fenway Park. Sounds like a pitcher's duel is the reverse lock of the day.
