Double Game 5 Elimination Games Game Thread THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE (or two, technically)

The Twins didn't fire anyone today. So, talk with your other baseball friends about the old Minnesota Twins playing for their playoff lives tonight and root like hell against the New York Yankees.

ALDS Game 5: Baltimore Orioles (Jason Hammel, 0-0, 3.18 ERA) vs. New York Yankees (C.C. Sabathia, 1-0, 2.08 ERA)

First pitch: 4:07

If you've been on the internet or in front of ESPN this afternoon, Alex Rodriguez is BENCHED for Game 5. Fortunately, the Yankees only have five more years and a billion damn dollars left on that contract. Yes, they'll still probably advance and set up a Meteor Series between the Yankees and the Tigers. But wouldn't it be great if they didn't?

NLDS Game 5: St. Louis Cardinals (Adam Wainwright) vs. Washington Nationals (Gio Gonzalez)

First pitch: 7:37

Regardless of who wins, everyone will STILL be talking about Stephen Strasburg, so that's great.

Enjoy the games, everybody.
