Red Sox vs. Angels

In what looks like the best series on paper, the Angels take on the Red Sox beginning Wednesday at 6:30est with Beckett (20-7) v. Lackey (19-9) in games 1 and 4. Both staff aces on the mound alone makes for a great setting but throw in Fenway in October and the consistency of the Angel bats, and you get a great series. But Lackey has struggled when facing Manny Ramierz, who is 10-for-23 (.435) with four homers against him, and David Ortiz, who is 10-for-26 (.385) with two homers. Anaheim will have to deal with ‘Boradwalk and Parkplace’ if they want to advance to the ALCS. So the question is do they have the arms to silence the guns of Boston, and do the ‘Sox have enough offense to combat the persistent onslaught of the Angel lineup?
