In a battle of small market teams that aren't the Indians, which one do you root for? I would guess for most Tribe fans the answer is, "The one that isn't a division rival."

Shields vs. Lester is a great pitching matchup, and if I were the Angels I'd be happy to know whichever team wins won't have its ace until Game 3 of the ALDS.
