Fasten your seat belts and get ready for the 2009 Fall Classic.  Cliff Lee & the Philadelphia Phillies take on CC Sabathia & the New York Yankees tonight at the new Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. Tonight’s match-up is a dream match-up.  2 aces who used to be teammates, 2 pitchers who have been spectacular thus far in the post-season, 1 team looking to repeat as World Series Champions, and 1 team looking to recapture that glory and win its 27th championship in franchise history.  It doesn’t get much better than this.

Tune in tonight on FOX at 7:57 Eastern time for the 1st pitch of the 2009 Fall Classic.  Not sure where most people are going, but I’m taking the Yankees in 7 games of an epic World Series battle.  I like the Phillies lineup better than the Yankees, but I just feel like the Yankees starting pitching is a little bit deeper.  Sabathia is great, Burnett is above average and Andy Pettitte brings that experience that makes him so tough to beat in October (and November this year).  There’s a reason that Pettitte has the most post-season wins in major league baseball history with 16.  After Cliff Lee, Pedro Martinez is a crapshoot, especially with the pressure of a game in the Bronx.  Cole Hamels has not been himself, and likely won’t be until he gets the necessary rest this off-season.  Joe Blanton?  No thank you.  It should be a great series – now let’s just hope it lives up to the hype…
