A. It looks like the Sox will actually start the playoffs Oct. 5 which is Wed. I think an extra day off may actually hurt the line-up.

B. If the wild card race is still on, it would be a bogus thing to do to NY and Boston to throw a B team out there against their potential competition.

The regulars should get at least some playing time as to not get "too" rested.

Yeah, give the regulars their start, then start pulling guys in the 5th inning.

What makes you say that? Whitesox.com claims it'll be the 4th. If it is the 5th, I have to change what day I'm taking off...

These guys are mentally and physically exhausted from playimg more one run games than anyone in the history of the world.
Rest is what they need.

Given his penchant for peculiar decisions, we oughta be thankful Ozzie didn't field that lineup a couple of times in the last two weeks...

mlb.com has a thing posting scenerios. If Cleveland or Boston win the Wild Card, according to the info on there the Sox open Oct.5, either against LAA, or Boston. They didn't have the scenerio of the Sox vs. NY. Looking at it more closely it is if the season ended today, and there was a play in game. So I don't know how that effects it.

If the Sox clinch they owe nothing to anyone besides themselves. Pods should not play until the playoffs. Send Crede home for the weekend. AJ should get nothing more than DH at bats. No regular should get more than 3 AB's in any game with liberal substitutions.
