LCS Open Thread and Ichthyomancy (Day Five)

And the League Championship Series keep plugging along.

Game One: Rays (Garza) at Red Sox (Lester), 4:37 p.m.

Game Two: Phillies (Blanton) at Dodgers (Lowe), 8:22 p.m.

OMG, Boston is going to play the early game?!  Who would've thunk it.  I fully expected that the Dodgers and Phillies would've been forced to play one of those breakfast at the park specials.  Wonders never cease.

Lowe will be going on three days rest.  I haven't looked up his stats, but normally sinker ball pitchers aren't hurt by the occasional short rest starts.

Since I am on a little bit of a Dodgers theme, I wanted to relay something to you that I read in ESPN the Magazine, Oct. 6, 2008 edition.  (Yes, I'm behind on my reading.)

It is a sort of interview with the Dodgers middle reliever, Joe Beimel and the second "question" is sort of humorous.


"We don't rack up the stats that help fantasy teams, and that doesn't bother me.  But it does make it funny when fans shout, 'You're on my fantasy team!  Throw me a ball!'  "It's like, c'mon.  We both know I'm not on your team."

Do the usual and pick a winner for each game and for the late game: a player of the game and an AAB selection.

Best of Luck to You!
