The teams are set and what may be the best World Series in 30 years starts on Wednesday, with the Phillies and the Yankees carnking up their bats and best pitchers for duels in two homer-friendly bandbox stadiums (or is it stadia? yeah, I know, who cares...). The early likely pitching matchups are definitely worth the hype: Cliff Lee vs. C.C. Sabathia in Game One, and the likely appearance of Pedro Martinez (in Yankee Stadium, no less! Who's Yer Daddy?) vs. A.J. Burnett in Game Two might even overshadow the feast of sluggers facing each other every night of the Series. And by the way, do you think we could get a couple of DAY GAMES????
Yeah, I know, wishful thinking.
Phils is 7, maybe even 6!
