If there is such a thing as a bad scheduling spot for a team in baseball, this is it. It’s really unfair for the Red Sox to have had to play a game last night at the Rogers Centre, only to have to turn around and come back to Arlington to play the Rangers roughly 16 hours after getting on the airplane to get into town. To make matters worse, the pitching matchup really isn’t all that friendly either. Simply put, LHP Derek Holland is due for some good fortune, while the baseball gods are eventually going to stop watching over LHP Felix Doubront. We do love that Doubront has struck out 50 batters in his last six starts combined, but there is a point that a man that hasn’t pitched deeper than 6.2 innings all season long is going to get punished. Boston is averaging 7.5 runs per game of support for its lefty, and that is all going to come crashing down against Holland. Texas’ southpaw has been unfortunate from the standpoint that he is just 1-2 in spite of the fact that he has a 3.38 ERA and a sub-1.00 WHIP in his 34.2 innings of work. The team hasn’t helped him all that much in terms of errors, and the bullpen has been brutal as well. Holland will get it all to go his way on Friday night though, as he leads the Rangers to victory against the Bo Sox.

Red Sox @ Rangers Pick 5/3/13: Texas Rangers -120
Red Sox @ Rangers Score Prediction: Texas 6 – Boston 3
