Pregame from the Jake

CLEVELAND -- Terry Francona didn't listen to me, not that I expected him to. Lineups have been posted for Game Five of the ALCS and it's same old-same old for the Red Sox, unless you call putting Bobby Kielty in right field for J.D. Drew an earth-shaking move.

Here's tonight's lineups:

Boston                                       Cleveland

Dustin Pedroia, 2b                  Grady Sizemore, cf
