Summary
Some notes, and my opinion. I didn't watch it, so these are snippets of thoughts from the stats:
Yanks should not have started Wang, Mussina probably would have been a better option, and with the way the bullpen pitched last night, I would have start Mussina. A-Rod actually did something...Shoppach had an impressive postseason debut...Sizemore hit his first career postseason home run...Paul Byrd pitched well for the Tribe...that's about all.

Indians-Red Sox. Should be a good one.
