Game 21: For The Sweep

New, 353 comments

This is one the Red Sox could really use. At .500 for the first time this season, the Sox can guarantee at least an even record in April with a win against the White Sox tonight. More importantly, in my mind, they insure themselves against falling two below should Clay Buchholz continue to struggle in tomorrow's game.

They seem to have the right man on the mound for this game in Josh Beckett. After his terrible debut against Detroit, Beckett has been the rock of the staff. Let's hope that continues.

Both Paul Konerko and Kevin Youkilis are late scratches. No word yet what's up with Youkilis, but he's been replaced by Nick Punto, so that should be...fun...
