In case you have been hiding under a rock, game 1 of the  World Series between the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees on Fox. It will be the first World Series game played at the new billion-dollar Yankee stadium that just opened this year. During the regular season the Phillies came out victorious in 2 out of the 3 games against the Yankees, but that was in May and the Yankees are a completely different team now.

As the Yankees look to regain their supremacy as MLB top team, the reigning World Series champion Phillies are looking to win two titles in a row and give MLB highest paid team another reason to dream for next year. Both teams have won a World Series championship this decade and are looking to tie the Boston Red Sox as the only two teams with 2 championships in the decade.

Most sports analyst are saying the Yankees will prevail in 6 games, but they seem to forget that the Phillies lineup may not be as deep as the Yankees but they are just as powerful. With both Yankees Alex Rodriguez and Phillies Ryan Howard having very productive post seasons, it could come down to which one of them can keep the hot streak going for their team. Both teams also have veteran superstar leaders in Yankees captain Derek Jeter and Phillies Jimmy Rollins who both may of struggled a little in the regular season but when the post season came they showed up when their team needed them.

Not only will we see two powerful offenses going against each other but also the pitching rotations could make the most difference in the outcome of the series. Game 1 has Phillies Ace Cliff Lee facing one of his best friends and arguably the best starting pitcher this post season in CC Sabathia of the Yankees. Game two is guaranteed to have the Yankee fans on their feet as ex Boston Red Sox Pedro Martinez now with the Phillies comes back to town to face A.J Burnett. I think a majority of the Yankee fans still have the image of Pedro throwing Don Zimmer on the ground still in the back of their minds, so you can be sure they will be taunting Pedro with the » who’s your daddy» chant. It Does not matter how you look at the teams they seem to be fairly even going into tonight’s game except for thing the Yankees have » The Sandman» Mariano Rivera.
