The Red Sox Playoff schedule has been set and you’d better start taking your No-Doze.
Red Sox-Angels game #1 is Thursday night at 9:37 pm ET followed by the identical start time on Friday night. Both games are in Anaheim. Jon Lester will pitch game #1 while Josh Beckett will pitch game #2.
Games #3, and 4 will take place Sunday and Monday at Fenway park. No starting times have been announced. All games will be on TBS.
And if you care the Yankees begin their playoffs on Wednesday evening at 6:07 (game #2 same time on Friday) against the winner of tomorrows Tigers@Twins playoff game. …How is that for an advantage for the Yankees-not only do they begin at home but their opponent plays an emotionally charged playoff game the afternoon before and then hops on a plane in Minnesota to fly to New York late the night before the series starts?
C’mon Major League Baseball. They should have made an adjustment that says if you are involved in a playoff game (much less a playoff game 2 days after the season ends) then your playoff series will begin on thursday.
