BALTIMORE -- Though his team locked up home field advantage in the playoffs and a matchup in the American League Division Series against the winner of the one-game playoff between the wild card winners, Red Sox manager John Farrell said that he was not yet ready to announce the order of his starting rotation in the ALDS. "We'll have that in a couple of days," Farrell said. Jon Lester, considered a leading contender to start Game 1 of the ALDS, left the team on Saturday night to head to Boston, where his wife, Farrah Lester, is scheduled to have labor induced on Sunday morning for the delivery of the couple's second child.
