Boston vs Toronto Game 8 (espn preview here)

Am not looking forward to this matchup, Clement is like 1 forever against this team and the way the Blue Jays are hitting against us do not make a good combination. Franco needs to shake up the line up, move everybody around except for Papi and Manny. Get a little fun back in this, because everybody and I mean everybody seems to be getting the A-Rod disease. Scouting Report

Clement has labored through his last two starts, allowing a combined seven runs (six earned) on 15 hits in 10 1/3 innings. In his last start, Tampa Bay caught him for four runs in the first two innings of a 5-2 loss, but he settled down after that, allowing just one hit and no earned runs over the next four innings. The right-hander has struggled a bit against the Blue Jays in the past, going 1-3 for an 8.44 ERA in six career starts against Toronto.
