NL/ALDS G2 Open Thread (10/2/11) : Tigers-Yankees, Diamondbacks-Brewers, Phillies-Cardinals

Jerry Hairston is the Miguel Cairo of Chris Styneses.

DSG2: It's a sports-drink based on a video game. Three games today, with the Rangers and Rays idle (series tied 1-1):

DET @ NYY (Yankees lead 1-0)

3pm, Yankee Stadium

Max Scherzer vs. Freddy Garcia

TNT, Postseason.tv

Yankees and Tigers lineups here, with Rob Neyer's take

ARI @ MIL (Brewers lead 1-0)

5pm, Miller Park

Daniel Hudson vs. Zach Greinke

TBS, Postseason.tv

STL @ PHI (Phillies lead 1-0)

8:30pm, Citizens Bank Park

Chris Carpenter vs. Cliff Lee

TBS, Postseason.tv

Scherzer, Hudson and Greinke are all making post-season debuts. Lee made his debut in '09 in his first non-consecutive term as a Philly. Garcia and Carpenter are old hands, having debuted in the playoff in 2000 with Seattle and 2005 with the Cardinals, respectively. I'm sure most of Reds Country is hoping Carpenter's hand is especially old today, as he pitches on 4 days rest after leading the NL in innings pitched and batters faced this season. But as sure as it won't surprise me if he gives David Friese a between-innings lecture on always positioning himself in the path of the line drives he's giving up, it also won't surprise me if he's lights out.

Probably Unrealistic Future Reds Watch:

Rick Porcello, Tigers

C.J. Wilson, Rangers

James Shields, Rays

Far More Realistic Future Reds Watch:

Ramon Santiago, Tigers

Rafael Furcal, Cardinals

Willie Bloomquist, Diamondbacks

Brad Penny, Tigers

Bartolo Colon, Yankees
