A very blunt knife.
I'm missing today's game, but just checked the box score. While the main story is going to be the Red Sox bats - and especially, Ellsbury - Lackey is turning in an outing that is as good as Lester's last night. Still, I'd rather watch Lester any day. Yahoo! points out a pretty crazy stat: Sabathia has posted a 6.16 ERA versus the Red Sox in 2011, compared to his 2.11 ERA against everyone else. He must really hate the Red Sox right now; if it weren't for us, he'd be in the hunt for the Cy Young.
"The big left-hander, who leads the majors in wins, fell to 0-4 with a 7.20 ERA against Boston this year. He is 16-2 with a 2.11 ERA against everyone else."http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/recap;_ylt=AoFCiZI1LwiRZxDvgSylZqs5nYcB?gid=310806102
