GameThread: Texas Rangers @ Tampa Bay Rays, 8:07 PM

Cliff Lee

Tonight's game five of the ALDS is the first game five to be played in the LDS since the Yankees needed five games to beat the Angels in 2005. If the Braves could have held on to beat the Giants last night there would have been two games five, but it wasn't meant to be.

It's a rematch of game one pitchers with David Price again facing Cliff Lee. Price had a rough go of it last night but my gut tells me he'll be much better tonight.

Any rooting interest in this game? I'm torn. The Rays have been my mistress for quite some time but I've recently soured on them for a number of reasons (reasons which include playoff tickets on Stub Hub for $10, fans leaving in the middle of a playoff game, and the atmosphere at Tropicana Field being a disgrace). On the other hand, I feel absolutely no affection for the Texas Rangers. In fact, I kind of don't like them. I suppose it comes down to which team is more likely to beat the Yankees. Unfortunately I don't know which team that is. All I know is that I don't want to have to root for the National League in the World Series.

Get your baseball fix tonight, because this is it until game one of the ALCS on Friday night.
