Winning Peavy’s Sox debut yesterday against a very good pitcher was sweet. Today’s matchup is the best on paper for the Sox as veteran Brandon McCarthy (season ERA: 5.00) takes on rookie-plus Felix Doubront.
Ian Kennedy moved from the D-backs to the Padres at the trade deadline and faces his old team and old rotation-mate today in the Yankees and Hughes. Looks like it could be a slugfest, but Petco may dictate otherwise.
Enjoy the end of the weekend! And comment should today’s action move you to it.
