The Last Hurrah
This looks like a fairly even series, except that the Yankees will go with a three-man rotation featuring CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte. As Scott Lemieux observes, the Phillies lineup is so heavy on lefties that this puts the team at a severe disadvantage. So I have a hard time convincing myself that the Yankees, the slightly superior team in the substantially superior league with a number of small advantges, will lose. Yankees in 6.
