9/29: Scott Downs (4-3, 4.35) @ Matt Clement (13-6, 4.50)

I could write a whole big thing about this game. It could be about several things. It could be about which Matt Clement might show up. It could be about which Scott Downs might show up. It could be about who will give Edgar some offensive help. It could be about whether we should, this afternoon, anoint Lenny DiNardo the closer. It could be about the Yankees and their one-game lead, or about Cleveland and their no-game lead.
I won’t. Instead, all I’ll say is this. There is one – and only one – way to guarantee a playoff berth. Win the last 4. That’s it. All 4.
First pitch at 7:05pm, EDT.
