Clay Buchholz hasn't had much luck with his opponents of late — drawing CC Sabathia in New York, and now Justin Verlander in Boston. To add to his difficulties, Terry Francona in his wisdom has given Dustin Pedroia and J.D. Drew a day off, leaving Verlander to face Chris Woodward and Josh Reddick in their steads. I nominate Woodward to charge the mound on the first inside pitch and try to get Verlander ejected.
If that doesn't work, I guess the best we can hope for is a great performance from Buchholz and enough runs scratched out to turn this series win into a sweep.
