2009 WORLD SERIES. PHILLIES v YANKEES

 
 
Reply Thu 29 Oct, 2009 05:26 am
If the first game is any indicator, the Phillies seem to be hot and the YAnkees seem to suffer from a weak bullpen. I know its only game 1 but Cliff Lee (the Phillies newest pitcher, acquired in a trade in July of 2009) severed the aorta of the YAnkees and left em to bleed out on theor home turf. AS a Phillie fan, I am, of course gratified that my team is still in a post season hot streak. I think the Yankees were stunned at last nights 6-1 (almost shutout except fpr a dumass throw to first) rout which was really not as close as the score would make it appear.

I think the YAnkees are gonna be a different tream tonight. I hope the Phillies dont take a rest and be satisfied at a 1-1 split as the visiting team.

When a pitcher's red hot like that, ain't no team gonna beat him. Gotta give it another game or two to see how it will trend, though.

@Region Philbis,
did you see that little,behind-the-back catch that lee made on a grounder ? Was that rubbing it in or was he just not well positioned to make a "Standard" stop?

@djjd62,
ALl the tickets for game 4 are already sold. And the price in Philly is waaaay higher than in NYC. Philly fans are rabid and totally nuts.

My hatred for the Phillies is a 9, my hatred for the Yanks a 10. So I enjoyed watching Lee's masterful performance. The swagger he demonstrated is an advantage the Phillies have in what is otherwise, I think, an even matchup.

The Yanks' pen was bad last night, but you saw the guys Girardi calls when the team is behind (with the exception of Hughes). When they have the lead, and Girardi goes Chamberlain-Hughes-Rivera, it's quite often lights out. Whereas the opposite is true for the Phils. The Yankees have had two come-from-behind wins this postseason; bad news when your closer's season ERA is 7.

Anyway, it's a blast to finally watch a dynamic matchup in the World Series. And even more fun to see the millionaire-seats empty before the game is over.

@farmerman,
It's the swagger the Yankees used to have and are now missing dearly!

So much intrigue with Pedro starting tonight: http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news;_ylt=AmspV7LUed1J5hmQaN3RH6A5nYcB?slug=ti-pedrogametwo102809&prov=yhoo&type=lgns

What do y'all think? Charlie Manuel is starting Pedro ostensibly because he has WS experience and experience owning the Yanks. I say, however, that Pedro's past is precisely the reason you don't start him tonight. He's an old villain, and one whose fastball is about 10 mph slower than it was at his peak. Beating Pedro tonight wouldn't simply even the series, it would give the Yanks a morale boost sorely needed after last night's deflating loss. Better to start Pedro at home, no?

@Gargamel,
good point, but Philly embraces that kind of drama.

to which bullpen can stop the bleeding.

@farmerman,
no need for a game four, by game three the yankees are going to be so humiliated they'll concede

@Gargamel,

he was throwing 92-93 against LAD.
that, plus the off-speed stuff, plus the veteran savvy should be enough to silnce those bats again.
doubt he'll be intimidated by the environs.

if he goes 7, madsen pitches the 8th, lidge the 9th.
lidge looks more like the '08 version this month...

@Region Philbis,
lidge is 100% in playoffs. COURSE, he does it by loading bases then getting double plays a lot.
