Are you ready to put Game 1 behind you? Good, me too. Moving on to tonight’s Game 2, we have a matchup between Pedro Martinez (0-0, 0.00 ERA, 3Ks) and Allan James Burnett (0-0, 4.42 ERA, 13Ks). I feel good about the Yankee offense breaking out against Pedro tonight, unless [...]
-What can you say about last night’s game? Cliff Lee was unhittable and made the Yanks look like little leaguers for most of the night. CC was fine, I’ll take 7 IP and 2 R every time he goes out there. One thing about Lee, the Yanks are going to kick themselves [...]
For 8 innings tonight, Cliff Lee looked poised to throw the second straight World Series shutout at Yankee Stadium. As it was, the utterly dominant Lee (complete game, 1R, 0ER, 6H, 0BB, 10K) extended the Yankees’ World Series scoreless streak to 17 straight innings until the home nine broke through [...]
To have beaten Cliff Lee tonight, the Yankees would have had to pitch perfectly.
Sabathia didn’t even pitch poorly–he’s been so dominant lately that a little bit of rust looked akin to a collapse–but he wasn’t a match for Lee tonight.
Lee’s performance tonight sparked memories of Koufax and Ford–that’s how good it was.
If you were hoping to see Jay-Z perform today, that performance has been moved to Game 2 (rain).

Due to practical time constraints, I’ve been unable to complete a thorough pitching analysis (those infield and outfield comparisons took longer than expected). Rather than offer a diluted version, I encourage you to check out Mike’s pitching breakdowns over at River Ave Blues. He’s done a very nice job evaluating the Phillies starting [...]
Earlier today, I compared Philadelphia’s infield to New York’s infield and, although the matchup was relatively close, I concluded that the Yankees had the better group of players, overall. Now, I’m looking at outfields and DH options.
Nick Swisher (SW): Ah, the lovable Nick Swisher, who many thought should have been [...]
Collectively, in 2009, the Phillies hit .258/.334/.447.
Conversely, in 2009, the Yankees hit .283/.362/.478.
The Phillies’ statistics are influenced by their pitchers’ at-bats, making these macro numbers relatively useless. Therefore, it seems as though a more detailed and comprehensive comparative analysis of the two teams is needed in order to better understand why [...]
Tonight (assuming they play) marks the first World Series game at Yankee Stadium since Josh Beckett utterly schooled the Yankees [...]
During the ALCS, it seemed that the only place for Yankees fans to view how the other side’s fans were approaching the series was to visit the horrid place known as Halos Heaven. Thankfully, there are a number of excellent Phillies blogs, with Crashburn Alley being the best of the group. If you want [...]
