The end of the road for the Sox?

CC and Josh Beckett face off in Game 5 of the ALCS with the series on the line. As much as I'd like to see the Indians win the series, a win tonight means no baseball for five full days, which is ridiculous. Thank you, Bud Selig, for plotting my desire to watch baseball against my fan's conscience. Fun side story in this one tonight, apparently the Indians "unknowingly" brought in Josh Beckett's ex-girlfriend to sing the National Anthem.

Oh, and while we're at it, the Yankees are officially looking for a manager after Joe Torre turned them down. Wow, no one saw that coming. I wonder if the Yanks know that Jim Tracy is available...
