Rolling Dice for Game 2?
Tony Massarotti from the Herald — who is a thoroughly reliable reporter — just came out with the news on the newspaper’s website that it will be Dice-K in Game 2 and not Schilling.
Interesting. I suppose the theory is that you get Schilling as much rest as humanly possible this time of year and try to get Dice-K to keep up the momentum he had in that last start.
I’d be comfortable with Dice-K pitching a winner-take-all Game 5. Then you’d have Schilling lined up for the ALCS opener.
