    I almost feel like I'm jinxing myself by being the one to make this thread..

    Oh well..

    LA just beat themselves, you guys certainly didn't EARN that win besides Mo Being Mo there at the end.

    You will be momnumentally tougher than Tampa was, and you have that swag like we do.

    Expect a lot of home runs, and a lot of scoring. I just hate that now you'll be rested going into it.

    Sabathia vs. his former rotation-mate Cliff Lee. Could go any way. All I know is that we beat him up twice last year, and we can do it again.

    I say Phils in 7, no way this is a gimme for either of us.

    The Phils have better starting pitching.

    They can match up with the Yankees offensively.

    But I am concerned about their bullpen...especially Lidge.

    I certainly want the Phillies to win as it is genetically impossible for me to say "I want the Ydkjaes to wrf"

    QFT

    They certainly did their best to make sure NY won the series.

    May the Phillies finish the burning of the Bronx. :D

    Seriously though, I do hope that Philly wins, I'll go ahead and say Philly in 6. It's going to be a tough series but Philly just has the advantage in pitching when it comes down to it.

    Why is this not a poll?

    Which team will win in 4, 5, 6, or 7 games?

    Phillies can put up runs like the Yanks can...they def got the sticks

    They don't got the arms imo tho.

    Cliff Lee's numbers aren't impressive against the Yanks...5-5 +5 ERA and Hamels isn't pitching well at all.

    Mo> lidge obviously

    Should be a great series

    I'm calling Yanks in 6 tho

    Lidge has been his former self of late though when it counted most. Regular season didn't even happen at this point. Manual took his closer role from him and he earned it back and then some.

    My only concerns are our BP. Hamels is SOOO due for a dominant perfomance, he's got like 3 bad ones in a row.

    What's NY's rotation? CC, AJ, Pettitte?

    I love Pedro vs. Pettitte. It's like the old days.

    We've been hitting lefties WAY better too.

    how good are your lefties at holding runners?

    I think this game comes down to the tiny things like, Ruiz vs. Posada calling games. Ruiz is the man there. Better than Posada though? Who knows.

    They were saying that Phillies might start Pedro game 2 since hes pitched in NY b4. I kinda agree with that if I was the Phillies.

    Hamels has looked ugly man...his mechanics are off or something

    He didn't even have a good year.

    Lidge has been doing good...Lidge is still a top 7 closer regardless if he blows a save here and there.

    He's not MO tho.

    I agree tho...Pettite vs Pedro would be a blast to see

    And Manuel will easily out manage Girardi. I think we have that edge too.
