Bus I can't really see what that is supposed to be but what's it have to do with the World Series and a possible/probable Phils Yanks match up?

This is going to be a boring, awful World Series.

That being said, I probably won't watch any of this, but I hope that the Yankees lose.

Re: Yankees VS Phillies Official WS Thread

why the need to tell everyone you won't watch?
If the Phils and Yanks are boring what would be not boring.
Or by boring do you mean whatever team you like won't be participating?

I think it'll be an interesting World Series. I'll be rooting for Philly but I really hope that Hamels pitches a lot better than he did in the NLCS. If Anaheim wins tomorrow does it benefit Philly in any way (rotation setup, avoiding Sabbathia in Game 1 etc)?

He's pretty much the key for the Phillies to have any chance.

I guess I just hope it's a good World Series, because for the last 5 or so years, it's been very lopsided in the Fall Classic (meaning sweeps or 4-1).

The last good WS were back in '01 and '02, where games were coming down to the wire.

Usually, there are some dramatics in the ALCS and NLCS, but this year the playoffs have been really stale, with no intense rivalries that I care about.

And no, not meaning that my team isn't in it...as a Pirates fan, I'll probably never see my favorite teams in a World Series, so that isn't it.

Re: Yankees VS Phillies Official WS Thread

ok I see your point.

It has been that league championship series have almost always been more exciting then the WS.
I've read that many players feel the WS is anti-climactic and that the real pressure is LCS rounds.

Yeah, no stars, no power, no pitching. Awful.

If Anaheim can force a game 7 Sabathia will not be able to pitch game 1 and will likely only be able to start 2 games in the WS so you can bet the Phillies are rooting for the Angels.

Can't say I'm much of a Yankees fan, but I really have no interest in the Phillies or seeing them repeat, and since my team is AL, I'll say Yanks in 5.

Yanks win the ALCS in 6 games. CC will pitch game one at Yankee Stadium. As of 10/26, this thread is now official.

Before the World Series begins, we'll have to fend off all those Yankee haters out there coming out of the woodwork.

Re: Yankees VS Phillies Official WS Thread

If the Phils can take Game 1 or Game 2, I think they have a real shot at winning the series. If the Yanks take the first 2 games at home, I would give them the edge.

I am a Phils fan, but I will say Yanks in 7.

REPEAT!

Hopefully, the Phils can light up Sabathia like last year!
