Starting Pitcher -- Kevin Correia

The bad news is that the Red Sox are playing some awful baseball right now, making any given game a toss-up at best. The worse news is that Kevin Correia is actually pitching very well for the Twins so far. While the Red Sox' lineup did get going last night, it was an attack that petered out quickly after the first, and it was kind of just "one of those nights" besides. It's all too easy to imagine a weak night at the plate against Correia.

the good news--because there had o be some--is that John Lackey is at least not an auto-loss anymore. He was a bit sketchy in his last outing, however, and the Twins are swinging some very hot bats at the moment.

It's not an ideal situation for the Sox, but they need to start winning again before this whole thin spirals completely out of control.
