Like the acronym? I don't.

The Red Sox start a four game series tonight against the Los Angeles Angels of Anahiem. Thankfully we have one of our best pitchers on the mound tonight in Tim Wakefield (12-9, 4.07 ERA).

Wakefield will take on the ace of the Angels staff in Bartolo Colon (15-6, 3.44). Colon is coming off of a great game in which he went eight innings and gave up only one run against the Seattle Mariners.

Here's the lineup for tonight. Pretty usual except for that fact that Tony Graffanino is hitting in the five spot. And Manny Ramirez is back in the lineup.
