Ian Patrick Kennedy?

Yikes, Big Papi.

Tonight could be an epic game, but it could also be ugly. Joba vs. Youk in the brawl for it all. Sexy seems like a he's a fighter.

I'd like to see a good ol' fashioned pitchers duel with Beckett and Joba racking up Ks until around the 8th when A-Rod takes Beck yard.

Tonight is the game for the Yanks to win, isn't it? Especially with Ponson pitching BP on Sunday night.

Tonight is a game with many, many subplots:

Joba vs. Beck

Joba vs. Youk

The return of Big Papi

Will Manny sit this one out?

and (drumroll please) the tag team matchup of the year..."Overrated" Papelbon & "The Revenge of Red Sox Nation" vs. Mo & the Yankee 9th inning hitters

Will Mo get a save opportunity tonight and hear it from the Fenway crowd or will Paps get his chance and smite the Yankee hitters with his laser-emitting stare?

My predictions:

Beckett pitches a beaut, Joba pitches a beaut, Papi homers in his dramatic return, Arod K's 3x, Joba buzzes Youk, and Paps will get his chance to close but will of course intentionally hit a Yankee batter to cement his name in Red Sox lore

4-2 Sox
