Josh Fogg lives on the outer third of the plate. Tonight, he is kind of a righty poor man’s Francis (aka - average stuff at best) in a great hitting environment. You do the math; I’m off the clock. Fogg could always pitch the game of his life tonight like Jon Lieber did back in 2004 but I’m not betting on it. The Sox should put up crooked numbers early against Fogg.
Dice-K’s command of the fastball is the key for him tonight. It should work relatively well in Denver. In general, Dice-K should try to keep the heater down. Ground balls rarely become extra base hits. Individual areas of weakness for notable Rockies’ hitters:
* Helton - up on the corners
* Atkins - outside
* Hawpe - outside
* Holliday - outside on the corners
* Tulowitzki - inside and up, down and away
