      Anyone else got this fear in the back of their mind about the Phillies? Is it just me?

      Their bullpen brings out the opposite of fear in me. It gives me tingles thinking about Lidge pitching in the Bronx in a tie game in the 9th. Havent we done that to him once this year already? lol.

      If their starter goes 9, they don’t need a ‘pen as Lee has shown. Plus I just really didn’t like how we played against them earlier in the year. Then again, that was a long time ago for this team.

      I see us putting up more of an offensive fight than The Rox though

      Would love to see Pedro on the bump in the Bronx. Bring ‘em on!

      @ clintfsu813:
      I’m not comparing the Yankees vs. Phillies potential match up with the Rox-Phils match up (since the Yankees and Rockies are different types of teams), I was more comparing it to how we played them earlier in the year.

      @ Corey:
      Yea, I see your point. I just dont see the Phils pitching going 9 innings against our patient lineup. We would most assuredly see their bullpen pretty regularly if we were to face them in the WS. That I like, lol.

      You just answered your own question. Their pen stinks and the Yanks that lost to the Phils in late May were not the Yanks that went out and beat the hell out of baseball starting in July.

      @ Corey:
      That being said, yes, the Phils are a pretty strong team. Neither the Phils nor the Dodgers would be a cake-walk for the Yanks (or the Angels). I think all four teams could conceivably win it and I wouldn’t be surprised.

      I think the Yanks are better than Philly but I give Cliff Lee (and Hamels, to an extent) credit for being very good.

      I know it’s going to be a long and boring week, but let’s not jinx our boys and look past the Angels just yet ;)

      Ya, it’s mostly cause its a long and boring week.

      @ YankCrank:
      Agreed. The Angels will be a much stiffer test for the Yanks and I hope our boys use the next four days to get ready.

      By the way, I understand WHY there is such a long layoff between series but I think it stinks. By the time Game 1 rolls around, it will have been 9 days since CC last pitched an inning. That’s just ridiculous.

      I agree. These guys get used to playing every single day, and the starters every 5 days, so these extended rests are just so out of the ordinary.

      Idk if the players like it, but it sure sucks for the fans.
