Talkin Sox with Dan

Where baseball fans gather for commonsensical, opinionated Red Sox banter.

Pre-game Notes 4/21/12 — Yankees vs. Red Sox

This will the last time I open two straight posts with photos of Alex Rodriguez. I promise.

The Red Sox will take the field this afternoon at 4 p.m. against the Yankees, attempting to earn a split. It’s going to be a two-game series. Trust me.

Felix Doubront will face off against Freddy Garcia. Doubront will have to limit the free passes against a very tough Yankee lineup that can work the count. Conversely, the Red Sox offense must be patient with Garcia who has struggled with command early in the season. Garcia is a savvy veteran. He does not have the raw stuff that can overpower a major league lineup, but if you help him out, he will beat you.

Clay Buchholz turned in a poor performance yesterday, and the Red Sox will look to Doubront to right the ship. Economizing his pitch count will be paramount.

This afternoon’s game has all the makings of a classic Red Sox-Yankees match-up–four plus hours, high scoring, and a lot of trips to the mound.

Let’s look for the Red Sox to bounce back today and earn a win. Then, pray for rain and the Twins.
