I'm with Shanoff on this one: the Red Sox may have beat the snot out of C.C. and the Indians Friday, but, regardless of that outcome, the winner of Game 2 tonight — 8:21 pm EDT, FOX — will win this series. Well, that, and the difficult task of trying to beat God in the World Series.

On the mini-drumlins tonight it's Curt Schilling for the Sox and Fausto Carmona for the Indians. Schilling is 9-2 with a 1.93 ERA in 16 career playoff starts; Carmona is UNDEFEATED with a 1.00 ERA in *mumble mumble mumble* playoff starts. As you can clearly see, Carmona is the superior big-game pitcher.

Enjoy the game, guys. Try not to let McCarver get to you too much.

Note: The Gawker techies just informed me that they're planning to change Nibbles' water and newspapers sometime tonight/early morn. So, if I'm a little late getting started tomorrow, you know who they lost and/or stepped on.
