The stage has been set as the Rangers or rather Cliff Lee beat up on the Rays 5-1. Lee was Dominate as he pitched a complete game giving up only one run on six hits and struck out eleven Rays. Lee is amazing in the post season with this win his post season record is 6-0 with a 1.44 ERA and three complete games. He has 54 strikeouts against only 6 walks in 56 and 1/3 innings. I don’t know what else to say except WOW!

Last year Sabathia was 4-1 in the post season his only loss coming in the WS against Philly. He pitched 42 innings giving up only 30 hits and 13 runs, five of which came in his loss. So now Sabathia and the Yankees will travel to Texas in hopes to come away with a lead before the weekend when they will likely face Lee and his perfect post season record. Normally Lee would be the game one starter, but because he pitched last night he probably wont pitch till Sunday. So it will be CJ Wilson against Sabathia in game one. Wilson is 11-3 at home in 2010 but 0-3 vs the Yankees this season. Sabathia is 10-5 on the road and 1-0 vs the Rangers in 2010. Which team do you think will win? You can guess what I think.
