Indians v. Yanks tonight, with Paul Byrd going against Chien-Ming Wang (on short rest)...

Lineup is up...

You know, I have to wonder...if Byrd is getting slapped around, but the Indians have scored a couple of runs, and the game is, say, 3-3 in the 4th, would Eric Wedge get C.C. Sabathia up in the pen?

Fausto Carmona would be pitching on regular rest, should he be needed in game 5, and Wedge has caught a lot of flak for not going with Sabathia on short rest...

I have to wonder if he isn't going to see if Byrd can keep Cleveland in the game for a few innings, and then go to Sabathia for 2-3 innings to get the Indians to the 7th.

Just a thought...
