The Blue Jays are hitting everything, at the moment. The only real challenge that they will face will be in the third game, as Rodriguez will outduel Estrada.

With Buchholz, anything can happen, while Dickey is absolutely terrible outside and in places other than the Rogers Centre. Giving the edge to the Blue Jays in that game is simply the fear of the unknown in Buchholz than the understood bad play from Dickey, who could survive because of the Red Sox bats being that much worse.

Hutchison is deadly, as of late, while Kelly hasn’t exactly filled anyone with that same confidence. Look for Hutchison to start off strong, while Kelly will stumble in the first few innings. When Hutchison starts to tire, maybe the Red Sox can come from behind to win the game. That is, if Kelly hasn’t lost it for them, already.
