The World Series
The Fall Classic is here.
The matchup of the defending World Series Champion Philadelphia Phillies
taking on the Bronx Bombers the New York Yankees! This is a great match up and most fans have
to agree the best two teams in baseball are playing for the championship. It’s the defending champs against the team
with the best record during the regular season.
The two top home run hitting teams facing off. Expect some high scoring games. Both ballparks can be launching pads.
Lets hope that the games can be played without rain, snow and of
course freezing cold temperatures.
Playing baseball in November in Philly and NY is not exactly the best of
conditions. There is a lot of hype for the games, now lets just Play Ball!
How would you like to be a Cleveland Indians fan: Game one match up
is CC Sabathia against Cliff Lee. These
two were teammates in Cleveland 15 months
ago. That has to be painful to see these
two being the aces for the Yanks and Phils.
They may square off against each other three times in the best of
Zephyrs Notes – Philly has
five former Z’s on their roster.
Pitchers Brad Lidge, Chan Ho Park, Chad Durbin. Infielders Eric Bruntlett and Andy
Tracy. Yankees have former Zephyr manager Tony Pena on their coaching
staff. Congrats to Harahan native Chad
Gaudin. He had a strong season with the
Yankees after coming over in the trade with the Padres. Former Zephyrs coach Manny Acta was named
Manager of the Cleveland Indians on Monday.
