Red Sox vs Toronto Matchup

Due to some severe weather in CT over the last 24 hours our internet connections and electricity has been off and on. Thus a quick matchup! Hopefully we can add two once we are back to 100%.

The Red Sox and Brad are coming off a sweep of yes the NYY! Congrats to both of them! While we should be excited about being 2 games up the next two series are equally as important. We start with 3 games against Toronto and end with Tampa!

Clay Buchholz (4-3, 3.82) vs.  Jo-Jo Reyes (2-4, 4.16)
Predictions: Randy picks: Red Sox Lose   Brad Picks: Red Sox win
Watch out for Bucchholz he hasn't pitched since June 3 due to back stiffness and was pushed out of the Yankee series. He has struggled over his last 2 starts. The offense is clicking and love what Big Papi is doing. Pedroia's knee is just bruised and is in the lineup tonight!

John Lackey (3-5, 7.60) vs. Brandon Morrow (2-3, 4.50)
Randy: Red Sox Win   Brad: Red Sox Win
Lackey pitched well in his first start back last Sunday! However, he has said that his elbow will be in a problem all season, this definitely something to keep you eye on. Morrow has talent I think he threw a 1 hitter or a had a big strike out game last season.

Jon Lester (8-2, 3.98) vs. Kyle Drabek (4-4, 4.98)
Randy: Red Sox win   Brad: Red Sox Win
Lester was God awful against the Yankees. He need to rely more on his fast ball and throw it for strikes. His cutter right now is so bad it showed while he Texiara and Martin the knee!
Drabek started the season well but has struggled. He is young and has talent.
