C.J. Wilson (1-0, 2.03) vs. CC Sabathia (1-0, 7.20).
COMMENTS: Maybe the ALCS isn't all it was cracked up to be, because, like a Metamucil user, New York is on the brink of elimination. The heavily favored (by me, anyway) Yankees have been clobbered into submission by the Rangers, who have outscored them 30-11 in their first four games. Most impressive.
But in order to advance to the World Series, Texas has to get through New York's $161-million man, Sabathia. Can an ace turn a series around? Expect CC to throw BB's today, and perhaps he'll make the Rangers look like an AAA team. If he doesn't, Joe Girardi might have to start looking for another job.
Degree of difficulty: Tex is toast.
