There are worse things than getting out of Boston and New York with two wins. Like getting out with one.

There's no "adjustment" argument for Beltre and Sexson today - they've combined to face Pavano 35 times, with moderate success. Pavano's struggled to miss bats and prevent bleacher souvenirs so far, so there is reason for hope. As for Moyer...well, check out these numbers:
Current Yankees have combined to face Moyer 450 times. They have 150 hits, 61 of which have gone for extra bases, en route to a .333/.389/.582 batting line.
