Hard to Decide If Red Sox or Yankees Favored in John Lackey-CC Sabathia Pitching ‘Mismatch’

On paper, Tuesday's matchup between John Lackey and CC Sabathia might look like a mismatch. After all, Sabathia is the one with the Cy Young award.

But Lackey is 7-1 in his last eight decisions and Sabathia is 0-4 this year against the Red Sox.

Despite those numbers, NESN Nation's Nate Hinchey is still a little uneasy about the game. After all, the end of the season is nearing and the division race is heating up with each meeting between the Red Sox and Yankees.

So why is Nate worried if the numbers seem like they should support Lackey in the series opener? Watch the video to find out.
