EricBarton...good point about Lieber in the Bronx. He definitely gets game # 2 at home.
If you look at Torre's track record over the years he always counts game 3 as being HUGE. That being said he won't throw Leiber in that spot. The Yankees have hit Pedro the past few times so they are hopefully looking at some run support. Great game for Leiber to go.
To count on Orlando for anything at this point is premature. He had a dead arm last week folks. He was maxing out at 82 MPH. You can have all the guts and craftiness in the world but 82 MPH is not going to keep anyone honest.
Brown gets game 3. Orlando if his arm improves gets the nod in game 4. He isn't throwing a bullpen session until Monday anyway. If he is throwing then, there is no way they run him back out there tue or wed anyway.
I have said it a million times. It all comes down to KEVIN BROWN.

Game 1. Mussina
Game 2. Brown
Game 3. Duque
Game 4. Lieber
Game 5. Mussina
Game 6. Brown
Game 7. Duque [/b][/quote]
It would still be Lieber pitching game 2. The reason, he has pitched great at Yankee Stadium and not as great on the road.
K. Brown is an ace and he should start the pivotal Game 3 on the road.
