Red Sox Win!!!

So we move on to the ALCS. At this moment the Twins are winning 1-0 in the top of the second.

One bittersweet aspect of the Redsox win is that Derek Lowe, who had been one of the starters all season, had a terrible end of the regular season, so he was moved into the bullpen for the division playoff. He was very unhappy with that move.

[The Yankees just scored 2 runs and are now leading 2-1.]

Another aspect of the DLowe thing is that there had been a lot of talk on talk radio about when was the right time to bring Lowe into a game in the post-season. Should they wait until we were way ahead so he couldn't do a lot of damage?

Well tonite he came in in the 10th, pitched well, getting himself out of a little jam. And then, because he is the pitcher of record, he gets the Win. Sweet irony. Lowe closed out the ALDS last year against Oakland too.

[Yank winning 3-1, bottom of 2nd.]
