Chien-Ming Wang's next start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Boston Red Sox. Wang may catch a break this time around, as he is supposed to face off against rookie David Pauley, who is replacing the injured David Wells in the rotation. In 2 starts against the BoSox this season, Wang has struggled, going 0-1, pitching no more than 6.0 innings and with an ERA in excess of 4.50. Let's hope that the third time around's the charm for Wang.
