After Daisuke Matsuzaka handled the Braves easily in the first game, it's time for Devern Hansack to show Red Sox Nation what he's got. Hansack will make his first start for the Sox this season. Opposing him is future Hall of Famer John Smoltz.

You think the Braves could do better than Willie Harris at designated hitter? You can tell they are a National League team, huh? Personally, I don't think the Braves have that strong of a lineup. I really like Brian McCann and I respect the bats of Chipper Jones and Andruw Jones, but the rest of the lineup really isn't too dangerous. I'm sure I'll eat my words at some point, but that's what I think.
