Having dropped two previous playoff series to the Boston Red Sox both in sweeps, the Anaheim Angels hope they can change their luck against the Red Sox in 2008.

With a solid pitching staff, a very good defense, a great bullpen and an underrated offense, the Angels might just have the formula to pull off the feat this time around. 

And with possibly the best postseason pitcher of all time in Josh Beckett not 100%, winning this series for the Red Sox is going to be awfully difficult.

Pitching Matchups (First 3 games listed):

John Lester vs John Lackey

Daisuke Matsuzaka vs Ervin Santana

Joe Saunders vs Josh Beckett

Season Series: Angels won 8 of 9 games.

Prediction: Angels in 5
