Predictions are mostly worthless, so I will save you mine. But, I think the Yankees and Phillies have similar lineups and similar starting rotations. The difference to me is the bullpen- Philly has more questions. But, the Phillies have been here before, 20-of-25 Yankees have not. In addition, I think Charlie Manuel is a better manager than Joe Girardi.
Put it all together and you have the makings of a classic series. I could see the Yankees winning it quickly. I could see the Phillies taking it in 6 or 7. I think the Yankees have a slight advantage, but Girardi could punt that away with bad decisions. This is why you play the games and I can’t wait for tonight.
