Indians vs. Yankees, ALDS Game 1

I'm happy with Sweet Lou's decision to pull his ace after 85 pitches last night when the Cubs faced the Diamondbacks. Not because the Cubs lost; I want to see the Cubs win and move forward, even making it to the World Series. I'm happy with it because it should eliminate the possibility that the Indians' manager, Eric Wedge, does something as questionable when the Cleveland ace C.C. Sabathia goes against New York this evening. Couple Piniella's move with the Phillies being captained by former Indians' manager, Charlie Manuel, and it's looking really good for the Indians; everything that could go wrong is happening to those other teams.

One of the Mike's on Mike and Mike on ESPN2 likened Zambrano's pull to splitting a winning hand of two Queens in blackjack. Since the decision blew up in Piniella's face (and it's a wrong decision only in hindsight because it didn't work), the Indians' Wedge shouldn't take it into his own head to do the same with Sabathia to save him for a possible Game 4. I want to see Sabathia pitch for the win in Game 1, Carmona for the win in Game 2 and Westbrook pitch for the win and a sweep on Sunday in Game 3.

Listen up, Wedge:

Pitch to win. Don't pitch to play four.
