It's official: Beckett and Matsuzaka at Fenway and Schilling in Game 3 in Anaheim.
SoSHer Bob Montgomery's Helmet Hat says that in Francona's press conference, Tito said that he would have a quicker hook in the post-season. He certainly did in 2004, so I actually believe him.
Both Sean McAdam and Tony Massarotti are reporting that Daisuke Matsuzaka, not Curt Schilling, will start Game 2 of the ALDS at Fenway.
This doesn't make much sense. Dice's road ERA (4.02) is significantly better than his home ERA (4.86). Do they want him to avoid the time zone difference? Game 2 would have Dice on six days rest (Game 3 would be eight days).
Schilling would pitch Game 3 on 11 days rest and he would be unavailable to start a possible Game 5. (Would he possibly pitch in relief in Game 1?)
