Wang in position to start Game 1

From Peter Abraham:

Torre said Chien-Ming Wang and Andy Pettitte would be the starters for Games 1 and 2. No order has been set. But Pettitte will start and throw 50-60 pitches on Saturday, so it seems evident that Wang will start Game 1 and Pettitte Game 2. (Source)
If things stay the way they are (the Yankees being the Wild Card champions), they would travel to Cleveland for games one and two. Wang has a 4.62 career ERA on the road, as opposed to a 3.04 career ERA at home.

Also, in one career start at Jacobs Field, Wang's ERA stands at a healthy 8.44 (five runs in 5 1-3 innings).

Wang needs to step up and be the ace that he is.
