Silverman: Yankees-Red Sox Is Exactly What MLB Postseason Needs

Everybody’s gonna party like it’s 2003 (or 2004)?! Aaron F. Boone! Bloody Sock! Grady F. Little! Varitek vs. Jeter! The Slap! Big Papi! What else are we forgetting?

Baseball’s postseason has regularly been swallowed up by the NFL, and despite lesser TV ratings and alarm bells going off over long-term CTE issues, the NFL continues to dominate — last year’s Cubs-Indians World Series was an exception to the rule.

But there’s a chance that baseball could again have a postseason to remember this fall, one that could result in a strong arm-wrestling match with the NFL.

Francona ... points to Tomlin in rotation for ALDS

Francona: Clevinger going to bullpen “to be a weapon.” Indians leaning toward 4-man rotation for ALDS.

Francona didn’t name the 4th starter, but sure points to Tomlin in rotation for ALDS, if Game 4 needed. Team still weighing Salazar’s role.
