Boston won the “whose team sucks harder” contest yesterday, failing to plate against that offensive juggernaut what be the Miggy-Prince tandem. But the Yankees also gave up 8 to the Rays and sit just as winless while Joe Maddon looks like some sort of frickin’ genius pushing his second baseman over to stonewall what should have been an up-the-middle single for ARod in the ninth. Joe is shiftier than a plate of jello served by Sofia Vergara on Joba’s trampoline. I’ve got eggs to go hunt, so I’ll be taking the lazy route and putting these gamers together.
Boston starts first, with Clay Buchholz getting the go while the Tigers send Max Scherzer. One half-hour later it’s Phil Hughes against the rather formidable right-hander Jeremy Hellickson, who happens to be pitching on his 25th birthday.
