Red Sox lead the Angels 2-0
Rays lead the White Sox 2-0
Dodgers lead the Cubs 2-0
Phillies lead the Brewers 2-0
So all we know is that "Home Field Advantage" hasn't helped the Halos or the Cubbies. Phils are down as I type this against the Brewers 3-0 in the top of the sixth.
And we're sending (what sounds like) a healthy Josh Beckett to the mound tomorrow night at the reasonable hour of 7:17 PM.
His 1.73 ERA in 10 postseason appearances is the third lowest among pitchers with at least 40 innings. The .159 opponents batting average in the postseason is the lowest of any pitcher with 40-plus innings.
Lastly, from all accounts it seems like I should be glad we don't have TBS!!!
