The Rotation Is Set!
The Boston Red Sox have set their pitching rotation for the American League Championship Series, and Tito and John Farrell got it exactly right. It's Josh Beckett in game one, and he'll face CC Sabathia. In game two, and here is where Tito got it right, it will be Curt Schilling against Carmona. Matsuzaka and Wakefield, if his back holds up, round it out. If for some reason Wakes can't go, Josh Beckett will pitch on 3 days rest in game 4, and then if there's a 7th game, he will be available again on his normal 4 days of rest.
No news on Joe Torre yet, but I hope when the news does comes down, and it will, they keep him....they would never be able to find anyone better. Not on this earth. Or any other inhabited planets.
