Love the Zippy Pitcher's Duel

Last night, Chien-Ming Wang opened up the series in the Boogie Down against the Tribe the right way--by trading zeroes with Paul Byrd. Robbie Cano's homer would prove to be all the Yanks would need in a 1-0 victory.

Meanwhile, in Twinkie Land, the Red Sox and Curt Schilling had a similar duel going on against Johan Santana. The score was 1-1 through 11 innings, before the Sox broke through for a 2-1 lead, before dramatically losing on a Jason Kubel grand slam.

As they say, ouch.

Tonight, it's a battle of the Johnsons--Randy against Jason--at the Stadium. We know ours is bigger, but the question is, will he pitch better?

(Did you ever think that would be a valid question? Neither did I.)
