Some things to think about:
1) Who is going to win the Reebok shoes in the "Guess Dice-K's ERA" contest? This is Dice-K's last start of May. The winner of the contest will be notified tomorrow -- at the latest.

2) How will Dice-K bounce back after a rough outing against Texas last time out? Dice-K is facing a pretty tough Indians lineup, but is it better than the lineup he faced in Texas?

3) What will Kevin Youkilis do tonight? Hit for the cycle? Hit four home runs? Hit two grand slams from opposite sides of the plate, even though he doesn't bat lefty?
