Tonight is the start of the American League Championship Series between the New York Yankees and the Texas Rangers.  This game is being played at the Ballpark in Arlington and first pitch is scheduled for 8:07 PM EST.

The pitching match-up for tonight's game is between C.C. Sabathia and C.J. Wilson, both of whom had good regular season numbers.  Texas needs to take at least one of Sabathia starts to have a chance. Tonight will be their first opportunity to do so.

My name is Chris Matcovich and I am a featured columnist at Bleacher Report. I will be doing the live blogging during the game.  So please take part in the discussion by either posting on this article or contacting me via twitter @cmatcovich. 

I hope for some lively discussion, since this should be a very good game.
