Game 6 World Series: Phillies @ Yankees, 11/04/09

Below, as per Sam Borden, is tonight’s Yankees lineup.  Swish stays in right, Matsui and Posada thankfully return to the lineup, and Brett the Jet has center with Melky’s hamstring injury.  Lefty takes the hill looking to clinch the Yanks’ 27th World Series championship, going on three days’ rest.  He hasn’t done it in a while, but I like his chances, his experience, and his going at home before a raucous crowd nonetheless. He is tough, playoff tested, and will be supported by an improved offense.   The Yankees need to make Pedro pay for his mistakes in the zone, and to lay off junk outside the zone to drive up his pitch count.  Wrap it up tonight, boys. Finish off the Phillies before the home fans for #27.  Enjoy the game, everyone.  Let’s Go, Yankees!  Clap clap clap clap clap.

  1. How great would it be Andy pitching to Jorge with Mo closing the game to win the WS old times all against Pedro. The script is in writing.

  2. GO YANKEES

  3. Amen on both fronts, Nick. Sorry about no HDLR, but my router has been burping unreliably, giving me sporadic Internet for the last couple days. I could not possibly deal with that during such a huge game.

  4. Let’s Go, Yankees! Clap clap clap clap clap.
