ALCS Freak Out!

The baseball playoffs are a funny thing. One day you're riding high, confident as ever that your team might have dodged two Cy Young bullets, and a few hours later you're not sure if they'll win another game this season.

I don't think I'd recovered from Saturday's marathon loss to Cleveland -- even by the first pitch last night. Even if I had, however, last nights anemic offensive showing would have scared any confidence away.

So it comes down to this: Timmy Wakefield, whom I love, but who also hasn't pitched in almost a month. The bats need to wake up tonight, or we'll be down 3-1, and that's not good for anyone.
