Peavy, Doubront, Lackey, Lester Face Evil Ones

The Red Sox open a four-game series with the increasingly irrelevant Evil Empire tonight, sending Jake Peavy to the mound to face Ivan Nova. On Friday, Felix Doubront will take to the hill against fellow left-hander Andy "HGH" Pettitte. On Saturday afternoon, John Lackey will take on someone named David Huff and Sunday afternoon's match-up will feature Jon Lester against Hiroki Kuroda. The Carmine Hose have an excellent chance to dramatically accelerate the arrival of Yankee Elimination Day (a sorely needed new national holiday).
