Make this a poll and I think it will work better. Also ask for reasons in replies.
Personally I like the Yankee staff. What a surprise?
Head to head (NYY vs Bos) Mussina will outperform Pedro, especially with Enrique Wilson playing 2B, facing Pedro
Seriously, the top two for the Sox is better, but the next Yankee 3 are overwhelmingly better IMO and on any given day the Yankee top 2 can compete and even outpitch the Boston top 2.
Bullpen- I like the Yankee pen over the Boston pen with the additions of Quantrill, Gordon and the comeback of Karsay
Closer- Give me Rivera with the game on the line over any other pitcher in baseball
Yes I'm biased, but its my honest opinion and the best I can give you.
