Here's a shot from the Chicago Marathon from a site called Avant/Chicago. I'm speechless. Wait, no I'm not. Can someone tell me why I'm the only person in America that seemed to think the Indians not starting C.C. Sabathia last night made sense? Pitchers throwing on 3-days rest in the playoffs have a LONG history of sucking. Plus the only reason the Yanks went with Wang was because their backs were against the wall. The Indians' backs weren't against any wall. Everyone was acting like last night's game was Game 7 of the World Series. It was Game 4 of the Divisional Series. And what happened? Wang, pitching on three days rest, sucked. Wow, I'm stunned. I never could have guessed that would have happened. And the Yanks lost. So now we get Beckett and Sabathia. Seems like Wedge planned this pretty well to me. Lot of people are going to have to eat their words today.
