While Game 2 hasn't even began yet, the biggest question Charlie Manuel faced this morning regarded Game 3. Who is his starting pitcher?
J.A. Happ loosened up in the pen during the ninth inning of Game 1. Both Happ and Blanton will be ready if needed out of the pen today.
Pedro Martinez hasn't been an option out of the pen during the series. According to Manuel, all three are in play for Game 3.
"We'll probably know (Friday) after practice or something," said Manuel, who didn't appear to be in any kind of a rush. "I haven't talked to (pitching coach Rich) Dubee about it. We haven't got together on it yet. One day at a time. That's how we've been playing for the last three or four years."
