GAME NOTES: Well, here we go. The American League Championship Series. At Fenway Park. The Indians ace vs. the Red Sox ace. October baseball. Does it get any better? Might as well win the game, too.
Bobby Kielty gets the nod in RF (Tito reads the blog) over Drew in Game 1 with the Sabathia matchup. No changes for the Indians in their starting nine. Both bullpens are fully rested and prepared. I’m tired of counting down the hours and minutes……let’s set the tone and win Game 1 on our turf.
