American League
Boston Red Sox: Did Trot Nixon reinjure himself while celebrating David Ortiz's walk-off home run last week? Could be. Will he be ready to play in tonight's showdown against Oakland or at any time in the first round? Could be. Gordon Edes and Bob Hohler report on his injury status in today's Boston Globe.

New York Yankees: When the Yankees lose, it's news. At press time, there were no less than 65 articles on the Yankees on our ESPN MLB Insider site lines. Which isn't to say there wouldn't have been that many had they won. Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune speculates that the Yankees will target Twins free agents LaTroy Hawkins and Shannon Stewart in the coming off-season.
