Final Thought –

This series is going to come down to how long the Red Sox pitchers can keep the Blue Jays off of the scoreboard. Even if the Blue Jays score first, the Red Sox can still be in the game as long as the opposition’s scoring is slow. On paper, it looks like Buchholz should outduel Dickey, but he also could be due for a big loss. With the way that Rodriguez has been hit, lately, it would seem that Estrada would be too much for the Red Sox bats. Porcello… there are no words. He has almost insurmountable odds stacked against him, between the holiday crowd, the high-powered offense against him, and his own troubling issues. The only thing close to a guarantee is Miley having the skills to outmatch the rookie Boyd. However, we are still talking about the man who looked more like a horror movie before the month of June.
