Yankees-Phillies: New York Takes 2-1 World Series Lead »

Alex Rodriguez broke out of his World Series slump with a two-run home run, and Andy Pettitte picked up his 17th career playoff win as the Yankees won Game Three in Philadelphia.  After a 75-minute rain delay, New York rallied from an early 3-0 deficit to beat the Phillies 8-5, powered by a trio of home runs and sharp relief pitching to take a [...]

The New York Yankees: Comparing Yankees to Horror »

The 2009 New York Yankees are a scary team to face. Just ask any team that was included in their 103 wins. Now imagine the New York Yankees as horror movie villains. It is a scary thought but this presentation will give you a better idea who best resembles who. Plus there is a surprise at the end! Trick or Treat?Begin Slideshow

Why Hideki Matsui Shouldn’t Step Foot on »

Hideki Matsui has absolutely crushed the ball all season long for the Yankees, and he has continued to do that in the postseason. So far, he has produced a line of .278/.422/.472 with two home runs and six runs batted in. He also put together a regular season that exceeded all expectations. Johnny Damon and Nick Swisher turned in equally [...]

There’s No Place Like Home for the Philadelphia »

Game Three of the 2009 World series shifts today to the new launching pad in the National League, Citizens Bank Park. It's a bit ironic that the Philadelphia "Mashers" at one point in time had a far better record on the road than they did at home. They righted that situation in the second half of the season to finish nine games over .500 at home. [...]

World Series Enters The Twilight Zone »

Perhaps it's fitting that Game Three of the World Series will be played on the night of Halloween. Some strange, downright scary, developments played out in the first two games of the series, developments that make this matchup nearly impossible to predict going forward. I wouldn't be surprised if the ghost of Rod Serling introduced the starting [...]

Throw Out the Offense: This World Series Belongs to »

If you love pitching, this World Series is the sort that you can only dream about. Let’s recap what we’ve seen so far: In Game One, Cliff Lee threw an absolute gem, allowing only one run, which was unearned, while racking up 10 strikeouts over nine innings. CC Sabathia countered with a pretty impressive performance of his own, pitching [...]

Thoughts on the World Series So Far »

While I may hate both teams involved, the World Series this year has provided some very good baseball thus far. The reality is, these teams both legitimately deserve to be there this year. Some thoughts on the matchup so far: A split had to be something the Phillies were hoping for coming out of New York. Obviously, 2-0 would be better for them, [...]

SI Predicts A-Rod, Howard Homerfest: Good Call »

This week's Sports Illustrated previewed the World Series with a cover story with the following headline: "Welcome to the Big Bash," and this subhead, "Ryan Howard + A-Rod = World Series Home Run Derby." Or maybe not. After two games Rodriguez and Howard have combined to go 2 for 17 with 12 strikeouts and 0 home runs. Howard has both of the hits, [...]

A World Series In New York: The National Media’s »

To some degree, I sympathize with New York Yankee fans. Granted, my tears are largely of the crocodile variety because I readily acknowledge they bring a lot of the exploitation on themselves. Few fan bases are so quick to turn on their players when performance dips. Arguably, only Philadelphia can compete with the Big Apple's American League [...]

A.J. Burnett Proves He’s a Halloween Treat »

In New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of There's nothing you can't do, now you're in New York These streets will make you feel brand new Big lights will inspire you, let's hear it for New York This is the chorus (as sung by Grammy winner Alicia Keys) to Jay-Z's current hit single "Empire State of Mind."
