SnakePit vs. 7-2 is the ESPN game of the week - more by accident than anything, since it's the only one featuring two teams in the top half of the league. Snake's offense exploded last week, but is well-balanced, containing four players each with 6 HR. Their pitching will welcome the return of Matsuzaka, after his bout of 'flu. 7-2 have Lee and Lee as their core: four-game winner Cliff Lee on the mound, and Derrek Lee [7 HR, 21 RBI, 22 Runs] at the plate.
