Quick Open Thread tonight because I'm a little short on time, but if this game were to be played on paper tonight, the Red Sox should win it.
It will be John Lackey versus his old team -- again. And for the Angels, they send out Red Sox killer Scott Kazmir who is having the worst season of his career. Kazmir is literally the worst starting pitcher in the American League, so the Red Sox should see some success.
The lineups are as follows:
08/18/10 7:10 PM EDT
|Los Angeles Angels||Boston Red Sox|
|Bobby Abreu - LF||Marco Scutaro - SS|
|Reggie Willits - CF||Dustin Pedroia - 2B|
