The Red Sox are going to be throwing LHP Jon Lester in this one, and just the fact that there is a southpaw on the mound against the Tigers is definitely something that is telling to us. Detroit really hasn’t done well all season long against lefties relatively speaking, and without 3B Miguel Cabrera in the lineup in all likelihood, this is only going to be complicated quite a bit. Lester is a relatively modest 12-7 with a 3.84 ERA this year, but over the course of the last several starts, he really has pitched like an ace. RHP Max Scherzer is great, but you’ll notice that quite a bit, we are fading him. He was lucky not to get his second loss of the season in his last start, and he is going to be shook up just a bit in his second attempt to get his 20th win of the season in this one. This is a time for payback for the Red Sox, as they draw one back against the Tigers and hand Scherzer a very rare defeat. Getting this game at a de facto pick ’em is a steal of a deal.
