Last time

The Red Sox won a 3-game series at Fenway for one last hurrah at the end of August. Tim Wakefield was smoked in another 200 win attempt which turned out to be a 15-5 loss in game one. The Sox took games 2 and 3 to close out the last winning series of the season.

This time

Laser Show: David Ortiz

His .395 batting average, his ability to dominate lefties and righties, his use of the entire field, and many other factors make Ortiz an easy choice.
Pitch Around: Yoenis Cespedes

This is not a threatening lineup, but Cespedes poses the biggest power threat. His .253 average is good for 3rd on the team, so Sox pitching should be able to over-power this lineup.

Don't Fall Behind: Tommy Milone

The young lefty is having a great start to the season. Oakland continues to come up with great young pitchers, and this one will probably end up elsewhere soon. Tommy Milone can keep the A's in the game, but the Sox could rattle him easily.

How we see it goin' down

The Sox are feeling good and have been able to dominate teams of equal or lesser records. Pitching has built up some confidence and aside from the final game of the White Sox series, the bats have been hot. The Red Sox will knock the A's around and come away with a sweep.
