Mr. Gloomy vs. Mr. Cocky

I'm listening to the Yankees-Red Sox game in my home office right now, and I have to say the pitching matchup did not live up to its hype, although it did live up to recent performances, at least on the part of the Old Unit. It's pretty telling that Randy Johnson walked 5 Sox (or is that 10 socks?), while Josh Beckett hasn't walked anyone into the 7th inning. If I had to choose right now, I would much rather have Beckett and Schilling than Johnson and Mussina. And A-Rod seems to have the heebie-jeebies again. Maybe he is allergic to red uniforms. Both the Red Sox and Los Angeles de Anaheim seem to bring out the worst in the "best" player. He may be a better all around player, but I'd rather have Manny or Big Papi at bat in a clutch situation any day.

So round one goes to Mr. Cocky, while everyone waits to find out where Mr. Splittee (aka Roger Clemens) is going to spend his summer vacation.
