It's Red Sox - Yankees. It's Peavy - Nova. The big difference from the norm is the eight-game lead in our favor, but this still feels like a pretty big series.
The good news is, this is the first game of a series with a couple very winnable matchups and a couple of difficult ones. This is one of the difficult ones, but given what we just did in Detroit, and those two games to come, this one is neither imperative, nor impossible.
With that in mind...
