Red Sox or the Angels?
Yankees or the Indians?

I'll take the Sox in 4 games and the Indians in 5 games. What does everyone else think?

Who's pitching for the Yankees exactly?
Because I don't think the Indians will have trouble hitting the most washed up pitchers in baseball. On the other hand, can the Yankees hit C.C. and Fausto in games 1 and 2?

Question: When you say "washed up pitchers" please explain.
While The Yankees havent faced C.C that's gonna be more of a problem for him, very patient hitter's The Yankees. They eat up pitch counts like no other team. If C.C cant throw his junk over the plate than that cat will be forked in 3 innings. 1-9 The Yankees will rake all over the field. Better question is how are Indian hitter's gonna hit Wang?

That rally monkey will have no chance against The Yankee Squirrel. For you who dont know there's a squirrel who has been atop the RF foul ball pole the last 7 games at Yankee Stadium. Fear the squirrel. The winner of NY v. Cle. will be my team of choice for the WS. Cleveland has too many ex-Shockers to not root for. One being the winning catcher of the 1989 College WS.

Is Wang going to pitch every game? The Yankees have 4 pitchers, 2 whom are decent, Wang and Pettitte. They are a combined 34-16 this year with 245 strikeouts. The Yankees two "ACES" ERA's aren't that great. Clemens should have stayed retired, he's not the old Roger. Mussina should retire because he's been awful all year long. Rivera has been non-Rivera like the entire year. I'm not as worried if the Yankees take a 1 run lead going into the bottom of the 9th this year.

The Indians pitching this year has been stellar. Carmona and Sabathia combining for a record of 38-15. They also have 346 strikeouts between them. Both have ERA's under 3.25. Not to mention Paul Byrd pulled his ass out of his head this year winning 15 games. Hopefully the 22 year old starter Aaron Laffey gets some action because he's been great in his 6 games. Even Westbrook has looked good at times this year. Borowski has struggled the past month which really worries me, but if he struggles enough they can move Betancourt back to closer because nobody has been able to touch him.

Indians team ERA - 4.05
Yankees team ERA - 4.49

I like the Indians pitching way more than the Yankees. About 3 Yankees hitters are paid as much as the entire Cleveland roster, so obviously their better in that department. I've been waiting for this moment since 2001 when the Indians were in the playoffs last. And there's no other kid I like more than Grady Sizemore. He has the 2nd longest active playing streak in the majors. He just goes out and plays, got to have some respect for him.

It's time for the Tribe to shine.
