Open Thread: Playoffs, Day 6

The Phillies, Cubs and Angels are all done, leaving only two teams left playing: the Indians and Yankees, who play tonight at 7:37. I'd heard that it was going to be Paul Byrd against Mike Mussina, but Joe Torre wisely decided to let Mussina, who's had a miserable year, pitch out of the bullpen. Chien-Ming Wang will pitch on three days' rest instead. Of course, the decision might have been even easier if they'd just put Philip Hughes in the rotation, but then we might be having this same discussion about Roger Clemens, who hasn't exactly been Mr. Reliable this postseason or this year.
