To avoid the sweep, Boston sends Jon Lester to the mound against AJ Burnett.  Both starters have been stingy with the long ball so far this year, but while Burnett's both striking out and walking fewer batters, Lester's seen his walk rate climb to pre-2008 levels.

For those who are watching the game tonight, feel free to talk about it in the comments.  Or re-hash Dallas Braden's grandmother's addition to the Alex Rodriguez saga.  Or chat about baseball.

Plus, we're going to try something new.  After the jump you'll find a Twitter widget that pulls in anything with a #btbdaily hashtag.  Feel free to contribute to it by adding #btbdaily to anything you re-tweet or post fresh.
