The Baseball Show crew previews the finale of the Red Sox-Blue Jays series and the marquee pitching matchup that will be on display.

Lou Merloni predicts a true pitching duel between Jon Lester and R.A. Dickey. The latter was roughed up in the Jays' season opener but Merloni attributes that to nerves about coming to a new league with a new team that has high expectations this season. Lou expects to see a much sharper R.A. Dickey on Sunday.

Dan Shaughnessy isn't convinced.

"This is a slam dunk for Jon Lester," says Shaughnessy.

He went on to call Dickey a "flash in the pan" and a "one year wonder."

Both men can't be right.
