Big conflict looming in Denver

CLEVELAND -- The first update prior to Game Three of the ALCS is that Trot Nixon, whose pinch single broke the tie in the 11th inning Saturday, is starting for the Indians tonight in right field. More on the Tribe-Red Sox affair after the pregame interviews.

A bunch of us in the press box here have been talking about the chaos that could unfold in Denver on Monday, Oct. 29. Game Five of the World Series would be that night at 6:30 Mountain Time (although the way the Rockies are playing now, they might have already swept the Series by that point too!). At exactly the same time -- 6:30 Mountain -- the Denver Broncos are hosting the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football at Invesco Field at Mile High.

Distance between the two stadiums -- 2 1/4 miles. More than 120,000 people that close. Wow. I'm getting there early.
