8 BATS, NO PITCHING:

Red Sox continue dominating Yankees (Ronald Blum, 4/27/07, AP)

Daisuke Matsuzaka overcame control problems to defeat the Yankees for the second time in six days, and Kevin Youkilis and Julio Lugo homered in a come-from-behind 11-4 victory Friday night that improved Boston to 4-0 against its longtime rival this season. [...]

Given a 4-2 lead after the Yankees scored four in the fourth, Andy Pettitte (1-1) immediately gave it back, forcing in the tying run with a bases-loaded walk and allowing the go-ahead run to score on a wild pitch. Pettitte allowed five runs, six hits and five walks in 4 2-3 innings, making it 11 times in 21 games that New York's starters failed to pitch five innings.


Andy Pettite is their #1 starter and was pretty bad in the NL Central. Meanwhile, Roger Clemens says he won't decide whether to pitch this season until the end of May.

Pettite's their number 1?

On which planet?

Luckily, the Sawx get to face them more than any other team. It's almost as good as having Kansas City as your hated rivals and role model when it comes to padding your record.

Go Blue Jays!
