Open Thread 6/27: Red Sox at Braves

Today's game will be an interesting contrast between two pitchers whose styles are complete opposites. On one side for the Red Sox is Tim Wakefield, who doesn't throw a pitch over 85mph, yet he's 9-and-3 on the year at age 42. On the other side for the Braves is the power pitcher Javier Vazquez, who is second in the league in strikeouts.

Power vs. off-speed trickery.
