'Wang' is taking the 'Mound' Tonight

Sorry. There's more of that in here, tho-

The Yankees and the Indians will play Game 4 of their American League Division Series at Yankee Stadium on Monday at 7:37 p.m. ET, and the baseball world will be voyeuristically watching.

What a passionate tangle it should be! A win for the Yankees will send the series back to Cleveland's Jacobs Field for a decisive Game 5 on Wednesday. An Indians victory will send them to Boston for the opening of the AL Championship Series on Friday night against the Red Sox.

Behind a limp Wang, the Yanks lost the first game, 12-3. And were self-beaten, 2-1, in 11 innings in Game 2 when a swarm of gnats descended on the Jake from Lake Erie in the eighth inning and caused rookie Joba Chamberlain to lose his stiff composure in the bottom of the 8th. The Yanks also were held to three hits in the game by starter Fausto Carmona and reliever Rafael Perez.

When Wang was withdrawn, from the first game in this series, his pitching line was:
Wang (L, 0-1) 4.2 Innings, 8 hits, 8 runs, 4BB, 2K, 2HR, 15.43 ERA

The Localmalcontent is hoping for a similar, standup performance by Wang tonight... A Rod will be aiming for highlighting last night's performance, and Johnny Damon will try to stick his bat into things again as well.

The Indians need to prevent the Yankees intrusion into their holy ground!

So let's all hope and pull for the Indians. A possible, exciting and dramatic Yankees vs. Red Sox matchup notwithstanding, imagine that you live in Cleveland Ohio, the armpit of Ohio (just look at a map!). These fans need a good thing, they need a winner now. (Cavaliers = Zeroes, vs. S.A. Spurs)
And they are a force that will battle the Red Sox well.
before losing it .... in 5 games.

Otherwise, we all have to pray for another infestation of flying bugs from Lake Erie, during Game 5. No team from New York should be allowed to advance, after sticking it to the armpit of Ohio. That's just wrong!

Innocent double-entendres.... Priceless!
