Here's the one we're pretty much not gonna win.

"Why?" you might ask, had you not been keeping up on he matchups. The answer is simple:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - John Lackey 10-6 23 22 0 0 0 0 140.2 160 74 70 11 55 88 4.48 1.53


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - CC Sabathia 13-5 23 23 2 0 0 0 158.0 144 63 56 12 55 127 3.19 1.26


Kind of ugly, isn't it? Oh well, so it goes.

Kalish takes a seat a game after he hit his first major league home run, because it's not like he's consistently hit lefties better in the minors or anything. Or will have to face major league lefties on a regular basis. Oh, no, wait a minute...

Meanwhile the Lance Berkman deal is already paying dividends for the Yankees Red Sox as a BP line drive off his bat to Alex Rodriguez' leg has removed the mirror-kisser from the starting lineup.

Go Sox!
