    I wish, slasher. It is raining, but expected to stop. Fine with me. Rays are use to playing under the circus tent, not the elements Tongue Out

    In response to ZILLAGOD's comment:

    Throw away all the numbers in a best of five series.

    The one game playoff is cruel to teams who struggle for 162 games to make the playoffs, but a 5 game series is dumb. A team plays great ,wins it's division, has the best record overall and they play against a team that gets hot at the right time...lose game 1 , you are under pressure ( as you've just lost the home field advantage that you played all year for) lose games 1 and 2 and your back is against the wall for 3 games , two on the road.

    The playoff system rewards the wild card teams because the 5 game series does not allow for a bad start. Get off on the wrong foot and you have very little time to recover.

    I prefer being the underdog in a 5 game series. All the pressure is on the Red Sox.

    I could not agree more, Zill.  The first game is very important in a five game series.  The loser of this game has to then win three out of four.  The winner only has to split. 

    Gotta get to Moore early and often.

    Couldn't ask for a better start for Lester. And I heard he couldn't hit those speeds anymore Sealed

    Lester has looked great in one inning. They needed to drive Victorino in. It's the playoffs and all runs are necessary. 0-1 with runners in scoring position. Bit the Indans. See how it goes here.

    No competent ump should miss that call.

    How do you know it's about competency? It's about picking spots to adjust, or try to adjust games. Knowing Lester, it got him off his game did it not?

    Moore does not look very sharp today.  Pitch count is up and the Sox are hitting him hard but just aren't finding the holes.  They'll tag him for a few runs soon.

    Let's jinx Moore now...  he is on a no-hitter watch !

    If Lester can limit the damage to the Rodriguez HR, Sox will get to Moore the second time around.  He seems hittable.  At least more hittable than Price.

    we have hit Moore hard, just need to stay patient. If Lester or Ferrell doesn't call out the umps for that atrocious strikezone I will be surprised. It's the playoffs you can't have a Ump be that off!

    I sure hope so. Your observations are correct but Cleveland lost because of not capitalizing in RISP situations. That's what worries me.
