Zen And The Art Of Playoff Pitching

Fans may be going crazy in Oakland and Detroit right now, but one of tonight's starters is keeping his cool:
Tonight, I’m just going to chill out at my house. Watch a movie, surf the Internet, play some guitar. Just relax. Same old stuff for me. It’s just another start. Everything around me seems a little more intense or amplified, but my preparation out there on the mound is just about 60 feet and six inches, me and a catcher and a hitter, and if we win, we win. If we lose, we lose. Time will play itself out.
'Nuke' LaLoosh would be proud.
