Hey, you guys take your time with that series. 15 innings in Game 4 and another 12 innings in Game 5 would be fine with me.

Are you secretly rooting for the Yankees, so we can play each other, or, do you hate the Yanks so much that you just want them out, now?

I have to admit that when the Yanks and Sox are both in, I root for Boston advance if it seems like the Yanks will advance.

This year, I'd prefer that the Yankees advance because I think Boston would have a tougher time with Cleveland.

I agree with this.

Is it really short rest? He pitched Thursday, right? I mean, it is three games later, but with the breaks and all? I think I am having trouble with the baseball maths.

It is a good plan though!

On a normal 5th day, he'd pitch Tuesday after pitching Thursday. So it is short rest, which makes me think Frenchdog Yao Wang may be in trouble today.

Looks like Cleveland will stick with Byrd. We'll know soon enough if that comes back to bite them in the ass.

I understand why people think CC should be brought back tonight, but he didn't have the best game the other night. He kind of grinded things out. He's probably better than Byrd even on short rest, but I wonder if based on how Carmona pitched if Wedge would ever skip over CC in favor of Carmona in a game 5 situation.

Carmona would be on normal rest for that, so it's an intriguing thought, as he was simply dominant in Game 2.

I'd not toss Sabathia today. If their backs were to the wall, I might, but, 3 days rest for a power pitcher usually spells disaster. And, as was posted earlier, he did not look all that great in the first place during Game 1.

As for Wang, there's the baseball cliche that sinkerball pitchers pitch well with a tired arm, so the 3 days rest could benefit him. Regardless, I prefer him on 3 days rest than Mussina.

If I'm Cleveland I pitch Carmona in game 5 if there is one. The only way to do that and not risk losing your team by snubbing the CY favorite Sabathia is to pitch CC tonight & Fausto on Wednesday. The Tribe need 1 win, and their best chance of that is with Carmona...especially since if they lose tonight they'll see Pettitte again, and he shut them down completely on Friday.

And NSW, I'm normally up for Sox/Yanks but honestly this year I'm rooting for Cleveland. I just need a break from the media frenzy, the 5 hour games with my stomach in knots the whole time etc. And though my head says Cleveland is a tougher matchup, with the aces 1-2, my heart knows what the Yankees are capable of...and losing the ALCS to NY this year would be particularly painful, as I think the AL champ is a heavy WS favorite this year.

Sure, throwing CC on 3 days rest is a risk, but it's gotta be better than throwing Paul Byrd out there. Crappy RHP + lefty power hitters + short fence in right = not good.

It is weird to not hear Bob Sheppard in the background.

Yow. Might be time to summon Mussina from the fire station.
