10/8

Tonight: Indians +205 (1 unit)

I just don't follow the decision to start Byrd. Everyone is all over this, and for good reason.

It seems possible that the Tribe is ready to give Byrd a quick hook in favor of C.C. if he's got nothing. But if that's the plan, why not start Sabathia? If he looks that tired, Byrd is available for long relief, and the Indians have a good bullpen. Meanwhile, you don't risk Byrd getting lit up and putting the game out of reach right away.

Well it looks like Byrd wasn't the dog everyone thought he would be.
