17-9, 4.22

15-5, 3.39

GAME TIME 2:00 CDT

So here's a matchup of the two young dueling aces for today. Looking at that Jeff Francis mug shot always freaks me out, as he looks a whole lot like my little brother. The Rockies have won the VEB poll pretty decisively, so I guess there's not a whole lot to say other than 'let's go, rockies.'

Lineups:

COL PHI
Matsui, 2B Rollins, SS
Tulowitzki, SS Victorino, RF
Holliday, LF Utley, 2B
Helton, 1B Howard, 1B
Atkins, 3B Rowand, CF
Hawpe RF Burrell, LF
Spiborghs, CF Helms, 3B
Torrealba, C Ruiz, C
Francis, P Hamels, P

Lackey

Beckett

19-9, 3.01

207, 3.27

GAME TIME 5:30 CDT

And later today, you get the matchup of two AL cy candidates. I really think that Boston is too well balanced to lose this series, but we'll see what happens. I am very curious to see what happens when JD Drew makes his postseason debut for the Red Sox.
