The survivor will immediately fly to Chicago and play Tuesday night, ensuring that the White Sox will face a tired team.

So for now, Fox is still saying a Tuesday game. Works for me.

:D:

ESPN Radio has been saying the same thing all morning.

Surprisingly, Dan Patrick just said the White Sox took care of business and deserve to play tomorrow.

Also, Sportscenter will be here tomorrow.

Thank you MLB! This wouldve been horrible for me personally. The Sox better jump on LA/NY early and often and shake off the rust that may have developed the last 4 days. GO SOX!

I just heard a rumor that the ALCS would be postponed until Wednesday because of Game 5 between the Angels and Yankees being moved to today? Is there any truth to this?

ChiSoxTony's cousin says that he read baseball prospectus while surfing the web at the airport and eavesdropping on numerous famous people and that even though MLB has ruled the game will be played on Tuesday, doesn't mean it should be and that there is only an 88% chance that the game will actually be played on Tuesday.

Even if MLB has decided the game will start on Tuesday doesn't make it so. BP believes the game will start on Wednesday and that is all that matters.

Took me a while to find (http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/schedule/ps_05.jsp) it.

The way Selig kowtows to the media, I think the broadcasters' sites might be more definitive than MLB.

The Sox really do deserve to play tomorrow but I think this should fall on the owners, they should have taken less money from Fox and had at least some say when these games are played. Letting a network tell you when your playoffs are going to be is in my opinion somewhat ridiculous.

You know , Sox could have been rained out too but we took care of buisness so we deserve the rest. If the situation was reversed with the yankee's already clinching and the sox still playing there wouldn't be nearly as much interest in moving the ALCS.

Somebody should start a poll about how many runs ahead we're going to be before one of the announcers says you have to take into consideration the fact that the Yankees/Angels are absolutely exhausted, poor babies.
