The first big series of the year starts today, if it stops raining, against the Twins. Seth at SethSpeaks has a player by player match-up. For the most part, they are hard to quibble with, but the last two are howlers. Seth gives a "slight advantage" to Big Frank over Lew Ford at DH. I know Ford is off to a hot start, but he wasn't even on the major league roster to start the season. And since he is DH'ing, it doesn't matter that Ford is a bettr defensive player. Advantage Sox.

He also only gives Ordonez a "slight advantage" over Jacque Jones. I guess you could call a higher career OPS of 120 points slight, but I wouldn't!
