Game 1 World Series HDLR: Phillies @ Yankees, 10/28/09

Welcome to the World Series, Everyone!

Below, as per Sam Borden, is tonight’s Yanks’ starting lineup.  The Big Guy takes the hill tonight in the first World Series game for the Yanks in six years, facing former Cleveland teammate Cliff Lee in a match-up of top-flight lefty starters.  The lineup stays the same to start the World Series as it ended for the ALCS, with Jorge batting fifth and Matsui sixth.  I like C.C.’s and the Yankees’ chances tonight, and in the series overall.  The Phillies are the defending World Series champs, they have a deep and dangerous lineup, and have improved their rotation.  That said, I think the Yanks have a better pitching staff overall, especially the bullpen, and have a far more patient and equally deep lineup.  I see A-Rod staying hot, Teixeira heating up, The Captain being himself, and Melky and Swish turning over the lineup well.  I am also opening up the Heartland Digital Living Room for tonight’s game, so click here to enter.  I have an important meeting until 6 CT or so, and will do my best to be back around 6:30 CT, just before game time.  Although I will have the chat window via CoverItLive set up, people will not be cleared to comment until I get in, so feel free to post comments on the game thread below in the interim.  I set up plenty of digital leather recliners, and set out loads of pizza, chicken wings, cold coldies, and chips and spicy salsa, so come on in and dig in.  Get the Series start right with a big W, guys.  No letup now.  Enjoy the game, everyone.  Let’s go, Yankees! Clap clap clap clap clap.
