The Angels say that past is not prologue, that they are not spooked by the Red Sox. But the Angels have lost 12 of their last 13 playoff games against Boston, including first-round defeats in 2004, '07 and '08. "We're tired of answering those questions," Game 1 starter John Lackey said. "You're tired of asking them. Until we win, it's still going to be there." Vladimir Guerrero's playoff record: one home run and six runs batted in in his first postseason series, no home runs and one RBI in the four since then. Mike Scioscia's playoff record: 1-9 against the Red Sox, 15-11 against others.
