  @      First Pitch: Saturday 5:37 | Fenway Park | TBS/WEEI 2013 vs. Rays: 12-7 | +14 Run differential  Game 2 Matchup:   David Price, LHP  2013: 10-8, 3.3.33 ERA John Lackey, RHP  2013: 10-13, 3.52 ERA Career vs. Sox: 10-6, 2.93 ERA, 1.078 WHIP Career vs. Rays: 12-7, 4.39 ERA, 1.403 WHIP 2013 vs. Sox: 2-2, 2.48 ERA, 0.673 WHIP 2013 vs. Rays: 0-1, 8.10 ERA, 2.100 WHIP Last outing against the Sox: 9/10: (L) 8 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 9 K  Last outing against the Rays: 6/10: (ND) 5.2 IP, 10 H, 4 R, 4 ER, BB, 8 K Last game: I think we all remember the 12-2 thrashing of the Rays yesterday. I was a bit off with my 2-1 prediction, though I thought I would be spot on through the first 3 innings. It really started off as a pitchers duel and had all the workings of one until a young rightfielder by the name of Myers opened the flood gates. Then, it just became Jon Lester's dominance of the Rays and the Sox offense getting every break imaginable. It was glorious.  LINEUPS:       Check Back later for updated lineups                                                                                                                     Which Ray to watch out for: David Price The Sox were blessed this series with back-to-back Aces going for the Rays that have had great success against the Sox. David Price has had a couple of great outings against the Sox this season. He had back-to-back gems against the Sox late July, followed by a very good performance on the losing edge of a duel. On the other hand, Price has also had some terrible outing against the Sox, but, don't bet on it today. As I said about Moore, the Sox can't let him get past 6 innings. Key to Sox victory: Run support for John Lackey Lackey just doesn't get run support. It will be tough against David Price, but it is possible. Sit on the fastball and don't miss a pitch in the zone.    Prediction You have to feel great after yesterday's game and think the Sox are going to sweep the series. That would be nice. Today is where the Rays really have the pitching advantage, no matter how well Lackey pitched at home during the regular season. I am going to have to give this one to the Rays, 6-3.

David Price Goes on Sore Loser Twitter Rant

Rays ace David Price was clearly not himself yesterday. The Red Sox lit up the reigning Cy Young winner for seven runs—including two Big Papi home run specials—in Saturday's Game 2 victory, which was surprising in itself as I think we all expected it to be a little tougher than that. Then post game, we was visually frustrated, calling reporters and David Ortiz "...

Joe Maddon Says John Lackey Helped Pay for His Daughter’s Wedding in 2002

BOSTON — It really was water under the bridge. Joe Maddon had some pointed comments for John Lackey earlier this season. Lackey hit Rays outfielder Matt Joyce in the back with a pitch on June 10, and Maddon said that Lackey had acted like a “bad teammate.” However, Maddon also said after that game — which saw the benches clear — that Lackey had always been a good teammate...

Sox Win Game Two: In Ortiz (and Everyone Else) We Trust

I’ll admit, I was no fun to be around last night during game two of the ALDS. For one thing, I was washing down Hostess Twinkies with Michelob Ultra, meaning that sugar and alcohol spent the better part of the night battling over which could make me a bigger asshole. For another, I had an unshakable sense that something was going to go wrong for the Sox. That the Rays were folding...

Your Morning Dump...where we look to Clay for the sweep

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “There was definitely some days he’d come in and it just wasn’t ready yet,” Lackey said yesterday. “He was frustrated. I told him, ‘You’ve got to back off it a little bit.’ He had to take care...
