Their first time back to the World Series since the heartbreaking loss of 2001, the wipeout of 2003, and the Red Sox revenge of 2004 – and this series ought to be a good one. If Cliff Lee and CC Sabathia cancel each other out, look for a real slugfest from the hitting lineups of the Yanks and Phils, who beat the Yankees 2/3 in interleague play earlier this season.
The Angels always give the Yankees a hard time, but this year the Yanks came through, despite blowing both games they lost. And in the end, everyone on New York was contributing – even when Texiera’s bat went cold, his glove was saving runs. Swisher wasn’t hitting, but he fielded decently and finally got on base in tonight’s capper. And Melky Cabrera came alive with the bat to spark numerous run producing rallies – never mind the Jeter/A-Rod/Damon heart of the lineup, and the pitching of Sabathia, Pettite and Rivera.
Bring on the Phillies!
