We Interrupt This Postseason...

I'll make this brief, because I need to get back to the Joe Torre story I'm working on. But how about that one? As the incomparable George King wrote on the New York Post's Website this afternoon: "Joe Torre fired The Boss." It's not exactly shocking that the Torre/Yankees relationship is coming to an end, but the way it came down is a bit of a surprise, and now that there is finality to this drama it feels stunning.

However, we should get back to the ALCS. Game 5 is tonight. Red Sox vs. Indians. Josh Beckett vs. C.C. Sabathia. Is this series going back to Boston?

As you mull that over, here are your lineups:

For the Red Sox... No changes, other than the expected Kielty-for-Drew move:
2B Dustin Pedroia
1B Kevin Youkilis
DH David Ortiz
LF Manny Ramirez
3B Mike Lowell
RF Bobby Kielty
C Jason Varitek
CF Coco Crisp
SS Julio Lugo
(RHP Josh Beckett)

For the Indians... also no surprises:
CF Grady Sizemore
2B Asdrubal Cabrera
DH Travis Hafner
C Victor Martinez
1B Ryan Garko
SS Jhonny Peralta
LF Kenny Lofton
RF Franklin Gutierrez
3B Casey Blake
(LHP C.C. Sabathia)
