Game 124: Blue Jays @ Red Sox

New, comments

I can promise you one thing: tonight's game can not be worse than Friday night's game.

The Red Sox send out Daisuke Matsuzaka to do the job and hopefully get the Red Sox off a two-game losing streak. The Jays send out Ricky Romero:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - Daisuke Matsuzaka 8-4 18 18 0 0 0 0 110.0 96 53 51 9 51 95 4.17 1.34


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - Ricky Romero 10-7 24 24 3 1 0 0 160.0 145 68 61 11 58 136 3.43 1.27


Quick note: taking a peak at what Dice-K has done this season, I've come to this conclusion: he really hasn't been that bad. I'd take him over Josh Beckett or John Lackey at this point, I think. His 2010 season is right in line with his '08 and '07 seasons and those weren't exactly terrible.

The lineups, with the starting debut of Yamaico Navarro at second base:
