The Red Sox are coming off a clean, easy win on Wednesday and they could really use another one of those on Thursday. They will not be able to count on their pitching as much in this one, with Doug Fister making what could very well be his final start in a Red Sox uniform. He could always surprise us and throw seven shutout innings, but it seems like the Red Sox are going to need to score a bunch of runs to pull out a win this afternoon. They'll be going up against Francisco Liriano (I think. That hasn't been officially announced as I write this.), who can definitely allow some crooked numbers.
