If the Indians win this series, it may be because of Aaron Laffey’s performance last night. He came in for his first work in the postseason and dominated for 4 2/3 innings. To be fair, he didn’t have much to lose, but Laffey pitched like the Indians were only down by one.
As for Paul Byrd, I’m not sure what to think. I really like the guy, and so I’m inclined to trust that he was using it for medical reasons. And also, he hasn’t used since 2005. We’ll see I suppose.
