Game Thread: April 18, 2009

It should go without saying that the Indians really need a good long start from Carmona today. Although the starts have been better recently, expecting three good innings of relief from this setup corps isn't realistic. Fortunately, the Yankees are countering with their own struggling ground-ball machine, Chien-Ming Wang. Given how easily the new stadium seems to give up home runs, I'm expecting a vintage 1990s-style, bullpen-shreding shootout.
