And luck they will need, especially with that bullpen. They better score atleast 8 runs a game to even have any kind of a chance, cause lord knows the Yankees will eat that bullpen alive. :rock:


Yeah for real.

Many of my friends got on my case when I said it would be a Dodger/Yankees world series with the Yankees winning. I guess it went against being a fan or something like that haha.

The Yankees, IF they are playing to their potential are unstoppable.

Playing the game myself and even coaching high school, I understand the game pretty well. And even though it is possible that the Phillies can beat the Yankees, I believe that the Yankees may be just too tough.

That's not a knock on the Phillies, because I just watched them dismantle my team for the second consecutive year, because the Phillies are legit with their lineup.

But the Yanks have no weaknesses from watching them all season. Starting pitching is good, offense is good, defense is good, bullpen is good. The Phillies are missing that bullpen this year, and that could hurt them if the Yanks offense takes out the starting pitching early.

Good Post, I also wanted to see a Dodger vs Yankee matchup. Your Dodgers are young and they are getting better, your team is only an ace or 2 from contending in the World Series. I like the way Joe Torre has managed the Dodgers, I`m still a big fan of his so you can see why I was pulling for your Dodgers.

Sure they are young, the problem was they were young last year as well. That excuse is gone with me next year. We have two superstar quality players in Ethier and Kemp who are 30+ homerun and 100 RBI guys.

Loney, if he hits the way he did in the NLCS consistently, will be a 20+ homerun and 100 RBI guy.

Kershaw is still 21 years old, and learned a lot this postseason.

But we definitely need an ace or two to go along with Kershaw. Even though Kershaw will be a true ace in about a year or two, we need proven players who can help while he develops into that ace.

I'll admit that I'm not terribly surprised that the Phils did what they did offensively (CC was very, very good, but the Phils have hit him for XBHs regularly; the pen got eaten up). At the same time, I'm quite surprised that Lee was so dominant. Really amazing.

Game 2: Pedro vs. New York. I love Pedro, he has pitched incredibly well, but I just have to temper my enthusiasm and say he probably won't be anywhere near as impressive as Lee.

Could be a kind of make-or-break game for Pedro. I know he has already pitched his best ball, but if he loses and the Phils go on to lose...he probably doesn't get this chance again. He wins and the Phils go on to take the Series, he has a renaissance, and has a shot at legendary status.

Ugh. I thought at the beginning of the playoffs that it would be Philly and NY and that NY would take it. Then after how well Philly played up to the WS I thought they were too hot to be slowed. Unfortunately, Howard is AWOL. Hamels is in a free fall. It comes to Pedro to give the Phils a shot. I hope he's up to the task.

Things looking bleak for Philadelphia.

BEAT DOWN.

I have to admit that I couldn't watch the game last night. Saw very little of it. I knew what was coming.

So, the Phils have been winning without Victorino, Howard, and Utley. Yikes! I'm hoping they can hold it down until those guys return.

Starting pitching has been pretty dominant of late. Phils have currently won all five of their August games, and ended July by winning 8 of 10.

Currently 1 game behind Atlanta.

Ugh. Dominant pitching from two awesome pitchers tonight. Phils end up on the short end of one, 1-0.

Hmm...it might be 19 of 24. Still, they've done well.

I could stand to see the Dodgers take the Braves down a couple of games.

Another win for the Phils. They're firing on all cylinders right now. And Ryan Howard is targeting Monday for a return from the DL.
