ALCS prediction

Aces are high in the American League Championship Series as Cleveland and Boston open the series tonight in Fenway Park.

Cleveland features two front-runners in C.C. Sabthia and Fausto Carmona while the Red Sox counter with Josh Beckett and renowned big-game pitcher Curt Schilling.

So what will be the difference? The bats.

Boston tore through a pretty good pitching staff in the ALDS, torching Los Angeles' John Lackey, Kelvim Escobar and Jered Weaver.

Cleveland, meanwhile, drummed 19-game winner Chien-Ming Wang of the Yankees twice, but was held in check by a throwback performance by Andy Pettitte.

Boston is healthy for the first time in a long time and that's reason enough to like the Red Sox. The Indians won't go down without swinging, so I'll say Boston in 6.
